September 12 (no year); postmarked September 12 at New York; from Lanny(?)/Fanny(?) to her cousin Mary Few, Mary Chrystie's aunt. Mary's cousin mentions the people she met while on a trip to Albany, including Chancellor Landford, Joe Chartin, Mary Garritson, and Martin van Buren "...whom I was delighted, and quite astonished such an elegant and gentell man should be found in this republican country" (this sighting may date the letter to before 1821 and van Buren's election to the U.S. Senate).
