|Aurelia Hale letters
|Aurelia Hale to Sarah W. Nichols (née Hale) regarding a planned trip to go up north and Sarah's recent wedding
|1 September 1833
|Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)
|Nichols, Sarah W.
|She apologizes for not writing, but says that she lacked the energy to do so over the hot summer months. She continues to talk about going North, and believes that her husband will send both her and their daughter Sarah next year. She responds to news of her sister's marriage to a Mr. Nichols, and expresses dismay at some unspecified missteps from their brothers James and Joseph, and indicates that she intends to speak to them when she visits and also refund what they "had so unjustly taken." Note: Sarah W. Nichols is the married name of Sarah W. Hale. A small part of the letter is missing from where the seal tore the paper.
