dc.description.abstract Letter, 10 February 1793, of John Greenhow, Williamsburg, Virginia, to Doctor Alexander Galt, 7 Maze Pond, Southwark, London. Bemoans the boredom of his life, and compares it to a prison, relieved only by reading. Mr. John Randolph ["of Roanoke" (1773-1833)] and Mr. Robert Taylor, Junior, engaged in a duel. After three shots were fired, Mr. Taylor was wounded in the right buttock. Main topic of conversation has been the French Revolution, with numerous balls being held throughout the United States. Mrs. Blair, Mrs. Hallam, John Saunders, and Samuel Crawley have died.
