Previous installments of this list may be found in both issues of volume 18. This part continues documenting the writings of Elizabeth Seton contained in the archives of Saint Joseph Provincial House. All the writings annotated here are letters to Elizabeth’s friends, especially her close friends Julia Scott and Eliza Sadler. Elizabeth mostly writes about her family and inquires extensively after her friends and their children. Some letters to Scott are about William Seton’s family and business troubles and his illness. Others concern her life immediately after his death. She writes about her establishment in Baltimore and Emmitsburg. Letters to both friends span the period from the late 1790s to about 1820 and provide a detailed portrait of these lifelong friendships.
