1864 June 24 Letter to Sarah Blain (3705) from D. Sampson

Letter written on two sides of a single sheet. It is addressed from D. Sampson in South Salem, Ohio to Miss (Sarah) Blane (3705). I believe the letter dates from 1864 and is related to the April 22, 1864 letter from John Blane to Sarah Blane. The sender would be the widow Sampson. Note that Frank is not mentioned in any other family records, nor is he recorded in the 1870 Ross County census data.
