Abstract:

Personal letters from Gregory and Platt family members providing numerous details on family members and friends. Arranged chronologically.

Other details include remarks on the situation in Burlington, Vt. following the Confederate raid on St. Albans, Vt. in 1864, feeling the shock of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake in San Jose, Calif, and a trip to the Bahamas. There are two school essays titled: "The Arctic Region" ("Waddie's first composition copied by Fannie ") and "Raising Grain in California" by W. [Waddie?] C. Gregory. Also includes a single spiral bound volume titled "Letters, Fanny Arabella Hayes Platt" containing photocopies of a genealogical record of the Platt family and typewritten transcripts of letters (dated 1869-1870) [no original letters] that provide an account of an overland journey from Columbus [Ohio] to California. The Platt letters are addressed from Chicago, Ill.,Omaha, Neb., Utah, Nevada, and various places in California including San Francisco, Los Angeles, the Pacheco Valley, Stockton, Benicia, and Santa Barbara. Also includes a price list (dated Season 1913) for the Fallen Leaf Lodge [i.e. Stanford Sierra Camp) in Lake Tahoe, Calif.
