Scope and Contents of the Materials

This small book has poems, letters and drawings that were written to Miss Wherritt between 1857 and 1862. During the Battle of Richmond, Robert Thrall, a soldier in the 95th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, removed the book from the Madison County Courthouse. It remained with the Thrall family in Ohio until 1886 when his brother-in-law, L.A. Austin, decided to see if the original owner was still living. Newspaper articles pasted on the last pages document the history of the volume and include a letter from Mrs. F.W. Olds (Clara's married name). There are also letters in the book written by Mr. and Mrs. Austin and Carrie Thrall.
