From an illegible Channing family member, probably female, dated Oaklander, Oct. 21, (no year). "My dear Sir".

The writer will leave town for Boston in a few days. Persons mentioned are "Mr. Manchester" and "Judge Clark". Miss Dix and William Ellery Channing were friends.

7 Channing, W.E. William Ellery. Autograph Letter, Signed.

Dated Boston, Jany 14, 1825, to "Dear Sir", a Mr. Gibbs, expressing pleasure that he has arrived safely after a long voyage, and giving him news of the illness of "Sarah", whose "head still troubles her". She keeps her room, eating and sleeping little, and "in a state unequal to any business, but will inform you as soon as she can do anything." Then, there is some urgency involved, since the law gives just 30 days to "offer the will to the judge of probate", after the testatrix has died. "You will consult your own feelings, & wishes, as to being present at this time." Sarah would be Channing's sister-in-law, Sarah Gibbs. He was married to her sister (his cousin, Ruth), and lived with the Channings. The deceased would be Mary Channing Gibbs, mother of Sarah and Ruth, who died in December of 1824. This letter would be to one of two surviving brothers of Ruth and Sarah, George or William. "Your sisters wish you to express all your wishes on this subject, & join in love to you & Mrs G." One page, folded for mailing, minor stain at the bottom edge. In Very Good condition.
