James Buchanan Family Papers, Part 3 James Buchanan Henry
Description
Letter No. 3 from J. B. Henry to Mary Hagner Nicholson happy to have received her last letter and praising her sweetness and beauty while modestly acknowledging his faults; lamenting the fact that he never had a sister (she died at age 2) brought on by the visit of the Ingrahams; the atmosphere of Lake George must be felt in person, and implores her to use the pronoun “our” instead of “your” when referring to the place; that his steamboat would be right at home here; and lamenting that none of his own family has written. Envelope from Bolton, NY September 1 with stamp addressed to Miss Mary H. Nicholson, Care Col. Nicholson, Annapolis, Maryland. Bolton, Lake George, NY.
