State Historical Society of Iowa
This collection contains 56 holographic letters, 12 transcript letters, and 7 documents. The letters were written to Mary Ann Rice of Iowa City, Iowa from different locations. The content of the letters are routine with the exception that Rice discusses the cost and variety of goods that he provides the troops. He notes, for example, that he purchased a dozen eggs for 25 cents.
