No date. 3 letters (1 from Mary, apparently at a very young age, 1 from Mary's brother William, and 1 from Mary's mother Frances). A short note from Mary and a short note from William. Frances describes Mary's moral improvement during the course of her winter studies with her mother and father: "[Mary] has certainly in the last year overcome many of her evil propensities & I think I can now pronounce her a child of truth". Frances also expresses her regrets that Eliza has been surrounded by the sickness and death brought about by an outbreak of scarlet fever (in Newburgh?). Frances's letter is incomplete, there appears to be a leaf missing.
