Object Name Letter
Scope & Content Letter from Corinna (Mrs. C.E. Aldrich) to her brother (Mannevillette Elihu Dearing Brown). She apologizes for not writing sooner and says that she hasn't felt settled since they got married, and keeps waiting for "a removal to some better land". She also says that he should definitely go to Europe, but not before she and Ellen (Brown) see him again. Her news of the Seminole war: "Jessup has captured 500 Seminoles and with this rumour tuns another that he has made a new treaty with them, to let them remain down south!". But she is doubtful that they get news that can be relied upon.
