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."
