Item Information

Title:
Elizabeth Fries (Lummis) Ellet autograph letter signed to Harriet Stanley (McCrillis) Griswold, [1853]
Description:
Deeply resents Griswold's public attacks on her character, including his remark that she wrote letters to E[dgar] A[llan] Poe. He is mistaken in attributing to her a severe article on himself in the Louisville Journal. Has written to all those whose names he gave as authority, and received indignant denials, which she intends to exhibit beside Griswold's falsehoods.
