Author: Charlton, Jane C.
Abstract: Jane C. Charlton, Williamsburg, Virginia, to Sarah C. Watts, Lynchburg, Virginia. Mention of the harsh winter; there have been many parties, several of which were given by Mrs. Mason; did not attend any of the dancing parties, but did go to many card parties, because they are not as crowded, but are more fun; mention also of a party given by Mr. Radford; tells of a visit by Sally Browne, who has grown up quite a bit; Maria Savage is still there; teases about Eliza (Wright) Mayo becoming a matron and dressing "in the antique style"; tells of a duel fought between Mr. Jones and Mr. Cabell, two students at the College, and that both have been expelled; Mr. Jones received a wound to his thigh, which will more than likely render him a cripple; asks if she has seen Mrs. Ann E. Callaway, and comments that "perhaps matrimony has made as great a change in her sentiments as in Eliza Mayo's"; expects a dull Spring, as the Bishop, James Madison, has prohibited parties; regards to and from Mrs. Camp, S. Jackson, Mrs. Anderson, and the Brackens. 3 pages. autograph letter signed. Including typescript. 2 pages.
