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".)
To Maria Montgomery; circa 1840 September 26; Mary Chrystie Papers, Box 1, Folder 5; , Princeton University Library.
