- Scope and Contents
No date; postmarked February 17 from New York; from Frances Chrystie, Mary Chrystie's mother. Written to the side of the address block is a note in a different ink: "Letters in which my child is mentioned"--evidence of Frances Chrystie's attempt to gather materials by and concerning Mary after her death; Frances Chrystie writes about her great pleasure at wintering in the city and states that she is so content that "no change for me can be for the better"; Willie (William, Mary Chrystie's brother) and Mary are now studying under a new teacher who is much loved and respected by his pupils; Mary wheezes on occasion, but her health has largely been sound.
