1 J.M. HAMMONS 1865 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT LETTER HANDWRITTEN BY AN AUBURN CORRECTIONAL FACILITY GUARD AND CIVIL WAR VETERAN THANKFUL HE RETURNED FROM HIS SERVICE IN THE CAROLINAS FOR 'UNCLE SAMUEL'
AUBURN NEW YORK NY 1865 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is an interesting, original manuscript letter dated December 16, 1865 Auburn, New York handwritten by J.M. Hammons wherein he describes him work at the state prison, believed to be the Auburn Correctional Facility. Mr. Hammons writes his friend Hosea Edgerly [?] a chatty warm letter describing in short his work overseeing the prisoners in the shoe department, his happiness with the easy work conditions but particularly interesting is Hammons subtle reference to the Civil War, mentioning working for 'Uncle Samuel' in North and South Carolina [in the army] and pondering on how lucky he was to come home safely, stating 'only those who have been soldiers can form a correct idea of what the soldier has to endure.' The author writes of a job opportunity in Detroit but prefers Auburn now feeling like home and he urges his friend to visit and more. The 8" x 6" paper, folded to make four [4] pages, has two [2] fold creases, light general fading and overall is VG.
