Pelham Priory, circa 1837-1840; postmarked September 17 at new Rochelle, New York; Labeled "(No 3)" in an unknown hand at top of first page; from Mary Chrystie. Mary, addressing Anne as "Nancy," describes another picnic, including a tree where a young man named Underhill "hung himself in a fit of melancholy"; Mary steps onto a scale in a mill and is surprised to discover that she weighs only 85 pounds; she mentions that she has been "quite sick" but is now well; and she scolds Anne for not writing more often: "I have had twenty two letters since I have been here, and only three from you." Dates supplied are the probable years which Mary spent at Pelham Priory.
