My wife's G.G.G Grandfather died 1873 he married 1872 and his wife had a boy. He was a soldier in Salem Independent Cadets, the left letter says he died, and the right letter says they want to pay for funeral . It looks like both were writing from the same soldier.Really nice writing.
The soldiers were in Boston after this huge fire, and this is a 8/10 of him and wife before he died 1873. She had his son and this is the only man named Cook , and today my wife's brother has the Cook name.
