Letter from Hopeful Toler, Washington, [D.C.], to Amos Augustus Phelps, 1846 Aug[us]t 20
Hopeful Toler writes to Amos A. Phelps enclosing a letter (not included) from "Mr. Stowe" about securing the $100 loan Phelps seeks in Albany. He asks Phelps to write him once a week about Ann and says he "hope[s] to go for Ann in Sept[ember]." Toler also describes a trunk he has sent to Phelps, containing Ann's clothes, books, and a letter from his daughter, Charlotte. He then tells Phelps "that Ann has been vaccinated with Cow-Pox ... but that she has never had Whooping Cough, Measles or Scarlet Fever."
