Title

Elizabeth Huntington to Frederic Dan Huntington, Nov. 17th, 1845

Description

In this letter between Elizabeth Huntington and Frederic Dan Huntington, Elizabeth begins by apologizing to Frederic for the tardiness of her letter. Elizabeth states that she forgot to give the letter to Theodore, and was forced to wait for Theophilus to go to the market in Cabotville to drop the letter off at the Post Office. Elizabeth then describes her deep sorrows for the misfortunes of Frederic’s wife Hannah. Although the letter does not specifically address what Hannah’s misfortunes are, Elizabeth does make it clear that Frederic Dan Huntington’s sermon entitled “the great conflict of the day” seemed highly appropriate for the situation. Elizabeth concludes her letter by stating that she hopes her suggestions about Frederic’s situation were helpful, and that if Frederic’s efforts were successful, then praise should be given to Paul and another individual whose name is indecipherable.
