December 26, 1835, Princeton, New Jersey; postmarked December 29 at Princeton. 2 letters on one sheet (the first letter by Mary, the second letter by her Mother, Frances). Mary regales her brother with a description of her daily life and apologizes for not getting him a Christmas gift because "Princeton is a poor place and mama is loath to part with her money". Frances entreats Willie to send them more letters and reminds him to show his appreciation of a Mr. Dardan's generosity (he gave Willie a copy of Robinson Crusoe).
