July 12 (no year), The Rocks; from Mary Few, Mary Chrystie's aunt, to her mother Catherine Few, Mary Chrystie's grandmother. Mary congratulates her mother on becoming a grandmother for the first time (with the birth of William Few Chrystie); Mary is happy that the infant is a boy, "for this world is certainly particularly troublesome to the womankind--and as I always look very far ahead in my calculations I think it particularly fortunate that the eldest is of the protecting sex..."; the rest of the letter mentions many other family members.
