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).
