Show Details Note: mamma in *Greenwood, Elizabeth, letter Chicago 1836
".....The hymn book mamma has claimed, and shall retain it, and the
tracts have all been read....
.. Dear Mamma has not been at all well lately -- she has a severe
cold -- but she is recovering fast; she sends her most affectionate
love to you and desires me to say that she thought your letter to her
was the best present in the parcel. She was much pleased with it,
indeed and will answer it soon. She is beginning to loke (sic) the
place better than she did a short time ago.

She has always admired it some, but now better every day. She is
happy - she rides out almost every day, has plenty of calls to
return, every time she goes gets tired out sometimes of course. She
sends her love to Aunt Martha and would give the world (I do believe)
if she was living in Chicago."
