No date; postmarked December 11 at Fishkill Landing; from Frances Few
Chrystie, Mary Chrystie's mother, to Matilda Few, Mary Chrystie's
aunt. Frances Chrystie writes to her sister who, ten days
previously, set off on a journey by sea to Savannah, Georgia; due to
strong winds and storms, she expresses no small amount of anxiety
over her sister's well-being at sea; she mentions Mary's facility
with writing: "...teaching Mary is the greatest possible amusement
to me...as to writing I never saw any one learn so fast. She writes
whole sentences on the slate without a copy..."
