|Aurelia Hale letters
|Aurelia Hale to Sarah W. Hale regarding a storm and subsequent damage to her property
|22 May 1832
|Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)
|Hale, Sarah W.
|This letter was written shortly after Sarah departed from Alabama. In it, Aurelia says that she hopes Sarah was able to avoid the storm that came about a week after she left, which appears to have destroyed much of her property. She describes several buildings as being unroofed and several people (possibly slaves?) nearly dying when the roofs collapsed on them. She says that the storm also littered their fields with trees. She ends the letter by sending love to their brother and to Horatio.
