  1. What did he do at the office? As their a reason he was always tired and sick?

  2. Do we have a picture of Hiram’s sister? Curious, a very dedicated brother.

    • We do not have a picture of his sister sadly. We do have letters that he wrote back to his brother on the east coast that talk a lot about his sister and her mental health struggles.

  3. Thank you for your answer. I enjoy and look forward to reading Hiram diary.
