|Aurelia Hale letters
|Aurelia Hale to Horatio Hale regarding her first few days in Washington, Georgia
|31 May 1821
|Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)
|Letter to her brother written to tell him about her first few days in Washington, GA. She reports that the news of her arrival spread quickly and that she has already had several social engagements, and that the boarding house in which she is staying is quite comfortable, including having "three, sometimes four blacks" attend on her and bring her meals. She also writes extensively about taking on the role of teacher in the local school, which is scheduled to take place on June 18. A small part of the letter is obscured by what appears to have been a wax seal, and Horatio's address appears on the back of the second page.
