September 26 (no year; but probably 1840 based on a date provided in the letter itself), Pelham Priory. A short letter in which Mary mentions that she has been suffering from a cough and sore throat, complains that two of her friends have not written her, and excitedly relates how she has marked the days until she is able to give "little Mary Wilkes" a white worsted cap that she will knit in the future on "the 14th of October 1840". (The sequence of marked days and further reference to this date are found on the rear pastedown of Mary's journal: "How I will jump when I can say this day is Wednesday 14 October 1840".)

Preferred Citation
