April 2, 1835, New Haven; postmarked April 3 at New Haven; From Frances Seney(?) to her sister Catherine Few, Mary Chrystie's grandmother. A letter heavily laden with religious sentiment; also mentioned is a revival in religious curiosity and devotion "at the college"--Yale, presumably; Frances also asks her sister about a "Lunitick hospital" that might be able to affect a cure for the son of one of her friends; she also describes a number of profitable lessons she has taken away from her reading of Richerd Baxter's (1615-1691) The Saints' Everlasting Rest (first published in 1650).
