4 September 1870, Letter from Johann Jacob Frautschi to Christian Frautschi
Johann writes that not many people in his area are interested in religion. He himself must combat boredom, and tries to see it as a call towards more spiritual pursuits. He reports that they had a hot summer with sufficient rain, resulting in a good harvest. He has heard from a cousin, Jakob Frautschi in Wisconsin, who wishes to go west and is asking if Johann would like to purchase some land. Johann concludes by saying that he is surprised to hear of Napoleon's death.
