Robert receives news from home

On December 24, 1861, Jefferson Patterson wrote his son Robert a letter in response to the December 15 letter he received from Robert.  In the letter he comments on some of the news of the day and provides advice on how to stay healthy with good soup made from a variety of ingredients.  Unfortunately, a page or several pages, are missing from the letter.  (Transcript of Jefferson December 24, 1861 letter)
