|Aurelia Hale letters
|Aurelia Hale to Sarah W. Hale regarding their mother's death
|26 April 1826
|Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)
|Hale, Sarah W.
|This letter appears to have been written in response to a letter from Sarah notifying her of their mother's death. Aurelia says that she is glad that their mother's "days of sorrow and trouble are ended," and expresses some of her fond memories of their mother, especially from her childhood. She asks for assurances that their mother was comfortable when she died and for further information about their mother's burial. She also urges Sarah to "regain" her health over the summer.
