Price: $2,699.99

Quantity: 1 available


Very large archive of approx. 77 letters from Aurora to Ned, 1860s & 70s but mostly written from 1868 through 1872, from Boston with a few from Maine. A very interesting peek at the post Civil War era times with Aurora being very emotive. Aurora writes of travels with family, fattening up in the country during a visit (she tries to convince Edward to leave the stressful city and enjoy the countryside with her). Aurora also discusses local elections, tax matters and of course the gossip of family and within her large social circle. She also makes mention of a popular book of the times 'Darryl Gap' that she read and recommended to him. There are a few letters from her mother and some to a niece. From a human interest perspective readers will be delighted to watch the relationship grow as Aurora's letters begin 'Dear Edward' then after a while 'Dear Ned' and then 'Dearest Husband' and such sometime in 1872 as hey were married by that time. Overall these are in great shape and quite legible.
