 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 49

Scope and Contents

A watercolor illustration remains on this fragment of a letter from Mary Leslie to her mother. The illustration shows a man dressed in a sort of 17th century military costume sitting high in a tree. The letter has been cut down so that only the fragment with the illustration remains. The handwriting that is visible and the style of letter seems similar to those found in Mary's letters home from Chepstow, in 1851-2.


  • probably 1851 or 1852
