Dated July 6, 1841, Lebanonville; from Mary Chrystie; with substantial remains of dark green wax seal (with "Mary" still legible). Mary writes from her uncle's (Albert Chrystie's brother's) house in the country; she spends much of her time with her friend Louisa, but their "amusements together have lately been very much interrupted by [Louisa's] lover's (a Mr. Beals)" visits; Louisa's engagement to Mr. Beals is back on after her sister, who, Mary says, did not approve of the match, persuaded Louisa that she did not love him enough; Mary describes other activities, such as driving with her father, and expresses concern for her dog, who has been left at home with the servants.
