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..."
