Title Letter from Orlando to Ozellah Koon (Mrs. L. O. Koon)
Scope & Content Letter from Orlando to Ozellah Koon (Mrs. L. O. Koon)
November 1862
Orlando apologizes for not having written sooner-they have had a lot of company lately. He describes the preparation of one of their guests to go to Pittsburgh for the winter. He says that food is very expensive, and that he has taken to selling liquors and cigars. He urges Ozellah to write more often, although she shouldn't be offended if he does not write back as often, because men are more wayward (except for himself, but he thinks he is "one of the best natured fellows in the world"). He tells Ozellah that in her next letter to Eliza, she must tell Eliza that "she must bear your apparent neglect with a Christian meekness." He says again that he is quite busy with his dental practice, gives news of some family members, and urges Ozellah to write often.
