Jones, Oak Hill Post Office, Jackson County, Ohio, United States of America.
MUS/496/21/1. The envelope, as described above.
MUS/496/21/2. Letter, in Welsh, almost certainly from Daniel Jones to Richard Davies, his brother [-in-law]. Says he has no real news because he doesn't know anyone; mentions other Welsh immigrants from Cardiganshire but they are all far away; describes the country: no ditches or hedges, fences instead. Wood is plentiful but expensive as it is used for everything inc. house-building, and price also reflects the much longer distances involved in transporting it, but coal is cheap; mentions the weather; sends regards to and asks news of friends and neighbours in the old country. Last page(s) missing so no signature, and handwriting appears different from later letters signed by Daniel Jones; perhaps he had someone else write them.
