Title Letter from Amanda Clute to Ozellah (her daughter)
Scope & Content Letter from Amanda Clute to Ozellah (her daughter)
June 10, 1860
Amanda is staying with Eliza and helping her catch up with her sewing. She tells Ozellah that she prefers life in the woods to life in a town, and gives details about the wealthy family that Ozellah's aunt Jane is staying with. She mentions several acquaintances that she has seen while in town. The weather has been cool, but there has not been frost-she updates Ozellah on how different crops are doing. The letter picks up again the next day, with Amanda saying that she had a visit from Eliza and had to drop writing for the evening. She says she wishes she could be at home, passes along more news of acquaintances, and asks for news from home.
