This three-page handwritten letter, including envelope, is indicative of the illiteracy of the unknown author. It is a simple letter chronicling how God can heal wounds of the flesh and of the heart and spirit. She expresses hope that Caroline will visit in the summer months. Sometimes illegible, the note indicates the presence of a house slave.
