July 25 (no year), Lebanonville; 2 letters (1 from Mary and 1 from her mother, Frances). Mary Chrystie writes to her maternal great aunt, Maria Montgomery, about her outdoor activities at Lebanonville, including a session of horseback riding that made her "not the least afraid", but nevertheless left her sore: ". . . my bones acked (sic) so badly, at first I thought it was the rheumatism". Frances tells her Aunt, Maria Montgomery, about the pleasant time she and the family are having in the country, expresses concern over Mary's heatlh, and laments that the mail in Lebanonville is not "well regulated". Mary Chrystie's green wax "Mary" seal is attached. Year supplied by inference, the only year provided from Mary's time in Lebanonville is a letter to Anne Cambreleng, July 6, 1841 (see series 11 "Separately Collected Miscellaneous Letters", letter 11).
