Dublin Core

Title

Elizabeth Huntington to John Huntington, Apr. 25th, 1830

Description

This letter begins with Elizabeth mentioning Edward’s birthday and discussing how everything in this life, like business and pleasure, is undeserving of genuine concern unless it stems from religion. She then goes on to discuss how she saw Edward on Saturday and that he was in “good health and spirits.” Edward brought John cloth for his coat. She then proceeds to tell John that his father is sick with a swelled face but is continuing to live his life. She then updates him on other people and ends the letter because her paper is full, and says that she wants to hear from him soon.
