Title

Letter from Ann Thruston to Captain John O'Fallon, 30 January 1819

Description

Reports to her brother of social news, the impending marriage of Ann Bullitt to a widower, Mr. Howard. Says it was generally thought that Ann would never marry because “she would have no person that would ever think of her fortune but must marry her for herself alone.” Tells of an enslaved man who was executed for burning down his master’s house with the anxiety to kill his mistress, who hid in the corn field.
