Title Aurelia Hale to Sarah W. Nichols (née Hale) regarding the loss of two more children
Date 28 January 1837
Author Hale, Aurelia (cb. 1798)  
Recipient Nichols, Sarah W.  
Document Type Correspondence
Content Description This is apparently the first time Aurelia has written to Sarah in about eighteen months, though she thinks her husband has written more recently. She reports that she and her husband lost two more babies: John Joseph and Aurelia Ada, and that he was ill following that. Her son Thomas, however, is still quite healthy. She also discusses their brother James and indicates that the conflict between them was due to a misunderstanding, but suggests that Sarah let the matter drop.
