Description Linnaeus Fussell was the son of Graceanna Lewis' sister, Rebecca Lewis Fussell. They ask him about his time in the military, the health of the men with him, and how well he is supplied to care for them. Both deplore the military logistics that have left him insufficiently supplied. Lewis discusses a group of women in Phoenixville working to bring aid to Union soldiers and briefly mentions goings-on at the farm. Fussell talks about a new-born relative and the draft in their hometown.
