|Aurelia Hale letters
|Aurelia Hale to Sarah W. Hale regarding several matters, including a delirious cousin
|8 February 1833
|Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)
|Hale, Sarah W.
|She begins by apologizing for not writing sooner, but says that shortly after she started a letter that was presumably never sent, she was called away to see her cousin Frank, who appeared to be on his deathbed. He became delirious and spoke about God and the Devil, but appears to have recovered. She mentions that the friends Sarah made when she visited, including "Uncle Nick," have asked after her, and talks briefly about how unhappy she is with all the storms. She also promises to write to Horatio soon. A small part of the letter is missing from where the seal ripped the paper off. It is also breaking along the lines where is was once folded.
