Scope and Contents

Harriet writes while away from home, telling her husband that she noticed one of his pictures, "May Day," as being put up for sale along with other items belonging to a gentleman. Harriet comments on a Mrs. Dunlop, who left her goddaughter a considerable amount of money. She says that the day is lovely and she misses her loved ones, though she knows that Leslie is well "& in fresh air." She laments feeling that she is "doing nothing for my Family at home." The letter continues past the extant pages.
