|Aurelia Hale letters
|Aurelia Hale to Sarah W. Hale regarding her trip from Washington to White Hall, Georgia
|18 September 1823
|Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)
|Hale, Sarah W.
|She talks extensively about her trip from Washington to White Hall to visit her friend Mary, including the a carriage breakdown and fording creeks with horses. She reports having a "delightful" time visiting Mary. She also mentions a gift for her mother that she intends to send in the spring, but declines to tell her sister what it is. The third page of the letter is in two pieces, and along the lines where the paper was at one point folded, it is difficult to read.
