|Aurelia Hale letters
|Aurelia Hale to Sarah Hale regarding the school she teaches at
|4 June 1823
|Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)
|Hale, Sarah W.
|She references a letter she received from Sarah on May 11, and later goes on to speak about the examination at the school she teaches at. She also talks about the death of her friend Harriett, and says that she does not regret her friend's death because by dying, Harriett has "escaped a thousand a thousand of the misery of life... she has been taken from an unfeeling world." She also mentions hearing from their brother William Woodbridge, though it is difficult to make out further details about their communication because the third page is cross-written. The third page is also damaged and missed a segment.
