Troy June 21, 1832 Dear Bethia,

As I owe letters to none at home except William, and I do not feel like writing a French letter, I wish to pass away a solitary hour, in conversing with you, and telling you some of my bad feelings. Seems to me I know how to pity dear mother now that I am so nervous myself. I am almost constantly imagining that I have some bad disorder and that my friends will not come after me. My flesh appears to be washing away, and sometimes I cannot attend to my regular lessons. What I write more particularly at this time for is, to urge somebody to come after me if nobody has already started. I feel as if I were a “stranger in a stranger land”, and this you know is a melancholy feeling. Do not be alarmed about me but be sure and urge some one to come after me. I am well enough to walk about and write, but my appetite is poor. Do send someone after your affectionate sister.

Mary D. Huntington

Do not be alarmed from this as I wish not to alarm you but only come for me.
