Letter from Clarissa Tryon, [Farminton], to Amos Augustus Phelps, Charlotte Phelps, and Edward Phelps, April 5th 1841
Description:
In a dictated letter written down by Elizabeth Bodwell, Clarissa Tryon tells her son, Amos A. Phelps, about her illness and a few domestic affairs. She also expresses a desire to hear more of the family news, and “how Woodbridge is.” After this letter, Elizabeth Bodwell adds a few personal notes to Phelps’s wife, Charlotte, and their son, Edward afterwards. Finally, Anson G. Bodwell writes to A. A. Phelps that he has been “working for a letter respecting son Woodbridge” but have not received any. He asks Phelps to “write a few lines respecting him.”
