Extent1 item
DescriptionLetter written from Melville [Cupar, Fife] to Harriet Thiebault at Boulogne; dated 7 March and postmarked 1832 (the year date of 1831 is also incorrectly added in a different hand) and signed E. A. Leven.

She apologises for taking so long to answer Harriet's letter, and goes on to say that she is pleased to hear news of Harriet and her daughter 'Malvina' (Henriette Malvina). She describes the sombre mood of the country which has been affected by a cholera epidemic, and mentions that the Gascombes had to prolong their stay at Melville because there were cases of the disease in Edinburgh. She also discusses her children, and those of her relations.
