b) Digitized Carte de Visite of a young man dressed in a heavy, dark three-piece suit and white shirt. He has dark hair and pale eyes.

Photographer's stamp on the back: E. A. Hosier, Photographer, Kansas City, Mo

c) Digitized letter from C. H. Bouier [?] to Nellie Algine, dated June 14th. Rouier mentions how warm the weather is and that he's written three other letters so his letter to her will be short. He briefly mentions a large fire that destroyed property and killed four men. He also says that he made a trip to Nashville and saw his brother John there. He closes the letter by saying that he thinks the war will end soon and when it does he's going to take a trip to visit her and Uncle Sam Crist.

Possibly the Carte de Visite is of the brother, John Bouier.
