The Monforte Letters: Correspondence of Historical Interest 1837-1919
Over 300 pages, including index. "Includes randomly selected copies of original letters with photos and pedigree charts."
Written more than a century ago, The Monforte Letters is a collection of letters written amongst family and friends from 1837-1919. The letters, originally kept by Harriet Monforte and her eldest daughter, Martha “Mattie” Monforte Andrews, were felt to be important enough to be treasured by succeeding generations. The Monfortes were not wealthy or noted, but surely give us a glimpse into the daily lives of ordinary people of the times.
