January 15, 1836; postmarked January 16 at Princeton. 2 letters (1 from Mary and 1 from her mother, Frances). Various news from Mary, including an account of how she is now "working for poor children" by knitting and making caps. Frances describes Mary's recent bouts with stomach flu, fever, and respiratory problems; she also unfavorably compares Princeton to New York, saying of Princeton that it is "a bad place to bring up children".
