|Aurelia Hale letters
|Aurelia Hale to Sarah W. Hale regarding her sister's upcoming visit to Mount Meigs
|10 October 1830
|Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)
|Hale, Sarah W.
|She continues to plan for her sister's arrival in this letter, which is sent to Mobile, Alabama in anticipation of her sister's arrival there. She expresses great excitement that they can "meet on this side of the grave again." A drought has made the river low, so there are no steamboats running right now, so Aurelia suggests that her sister remain in Mobile until the steamboats begin to run again or she can find someone trustworthy to accompany her the rest of the way in a stagecoach. She again mentions being concerned for her sister's health, and mentions a "Brother Nicholas Merriwether" who is a physician and has promised to try to help Sarah recover her health.
