Description

January 5, 1841, New York; postmarked January 8 at New York; from Mary Chrystie. Mary apologizes for not having written sooner, but she has a good excuse: "I have been obliged to keep my room (and part of the time my bed) for nearly three weeks with an inflammation of my lungs"; she describes in detail her new dog--which she has named Rhoda in honor of her friend ("I hope you are able to appreciate the honour conferred on you..."); she explains that due to her illness she will not attend school "for some time"; Mary copies a long riddle for Rhoda to solve. A hole in the second leaf (presumably made when the wax seal was removed) affects the text.
