AbstractThe collection consists of five letters. One letter is addressed to Miss H. [Hannah] Rogers, care of H.B. Rogers, Niagara Falls. It is dated at Boston, July 15, 1828 and is from Mrs. Upham. Mrs. Upham writes that she received a letter from Mrs. Pearson and Hannah’s mother noting that they were very happy and well at Hampton Beach, and how agreeable they find everything. She relays more news about common friends and acquaintances. The writer also notes that poor Edward Emerson is in the insane hospital as a maniac and is painfully conscious of his situation. It is said he had crowded into 2 years the studies of 10. He has a complaint in the heart that must soon terminate his existence. It is the most melancholy case she has ever known. Another letter is signed “Hannah” and is addressed to Mrs. Elizabeth Livermore, Keene, N.H. The letter is addressed at Littleton, December 29, 1843. She writes about the death of Amelia, who left behind a six-month-old daughter, an update about Mr. White and his parish, and news of other friends and acquaintances. The remaining three letters are not signed. One is dated at Boston, June 26, 1851 and is addressed to “my dear friends” from J. Pecham[?].
