Plural wife of Miles P. Romney (great-grandfather of Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney), Annie, writes to her sister: "I would find it very lonesome here if I had any spare time, but I have too much to do to think about it very often. I generally feel worst when I try to write, for a long time I always had to have a good cry, but I am getting hardened now so that I don't mind it so much. . . ."
