Stephen Higginson (1808-1870) and his wife Agnes (1810-1888) moved their large family to Deerfield, Massachusetts, in April, 1854. They arrived in a blinding snowstorm, having traveled in an open sleigh after taking the train from Greenfield. Agnes wrote this letter to her son, Stephen Higginson III, a week later. The winter weather of New England must have seemed far away to Stephen as he wintered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
