July 10, 1841, Lebanon; 2 letters (1 from Mary Chrystie and 1 from her mother, Frances Chrystie); with substantial remains of a dark green wax seal (with "Mary" still legible). Mary describes her time in the country, with particular attention paid to the dogs, kittens, and birds around the farm at which she is staying; Mary also excitedly relates that she has "been made the confidant in love affairs, an office which I like very much, as I have love letters read to me" (the love letters are from a Mr. Beals and are directed to Mary's friend(?) Louisa). Frances Chrystie, Mary Chrystie's mother, complains that she has not had a letter in some time, and mentions that Mary is gaining strength and that Albert Chrystie, Frances' husband, is suffering from some sort of "dispeptic feeling which occasions an irregularity of his pulse."
