Title

1843.01.24 - Elizabeth Huntington to Frederic Huntington, Jan. 24, 1843

Description

The letter is from Elizabeth Huntington, to her son Frederic. She talks a lot about being proud of him, that she is happy that he cares about the poor and makes an effort to get them involved in the church. She says she will send some old garments and books for him to give to them. She also warns him about dining with that parishioner, for unknown reasons, but that she trusts he will make smart decisions. Frederic responds in a letter of his own, speaking about how he hopes to see her soon.
