"9/20/1829 Letter written by unidentified [?young] woman [Mildred?]
with a little daughter. The letter is addressed to her
mother who apparently lives in another state [probably
Virginia]. The writer mentions that it has taken her
26 days for a return trip to her home in Kentucky, which
is about 100 miles from Lexington. Nine of the 26-day
trip was spent waiting for a foundered mare to get well.
It was finally traded for a horse. The man who was
accompanying her home returned too late to "make a crop."
The writer is favorably impressed with the education of
children in her new homeland. She mentions a man who
wanted to return to Prince William or Stafford County
[Va?] to get a wife but could not get there; so he
married a cousin. The writer is much impressed with the
state of Kentucky, for it produces every kind of vege-
tation in great abundance, and one man can support a
large family without assistance. Only because of the
abundance is Kentucky favorable for women. Wages for
men and women ($70—$80; $40—$5O respectively) are much
better than her former home state. To help a woman
cousin decide whether to move to Kentucky, the writer
stresses that Kentucky is a "plentiful country for man
and beast." Kentuckians "make everything and sell nothing
for money except tobacco." Tea and coffee can be secured
by bartering lard at New Orleans. She advises her cousin
to "bring all the silver you can," and "don't part with
old Beck [?slave or horse?], she would be of great
service to you here."
