Previous installments of this list may be found in both issues of volume 18 and the first issue of this volume. This part continues documenting the writings of Elizabeth Seton contained in the archives of Saint Joseph Provincial House. There are letters to her friend Catherine Dupleix, mostly about Elizabeth’s family. There are also letters to various family members, especially Rebecca and Cecilia Seton. Those to Rebecca describe the Setons’ quarantine in Italy and Elizabeth’s growing interest in Catholicism. Those to Cecilia are filled with spiritual thoughts and advice.
