July 24 (no year; 1840?), Pelham Priory; postmarked July 24 at New
Rochelle; New York. Mary tells Maria, her maternal great aunt, about
the fun she is having while not at her lessons: she describes a pair
of swimming dogs and the near death of one of them and she explains
how to play a jump-rope game called "fox and geese". Mary expresses
homesickness and asks for supplies such as towels, a wash rag, a box
of wafers, and a bottle of comphire.
