Title: Letter: New York, [New York] to Callie [King, 185-] Jan. 3
Date: 1850 Jan. 3
Description: Letter from January 3, 1853? from Marion Lumpkin Cobb, wife of Thomas Read Rootes Cobb and daughter of Joseph Henry Lumpkin, to Callie King, wife of Porter King and Marion's sister, about a trip to New York with her father and family to tend to her own health. Her illness may be due to the birth of one of her sons. She also includes news of her son's illness, fashions in New York, seeing the play David Copperfield, anticipating a performance of the operatic singer Sontag, and a visit to New Haven. Neither of her sons surrived childhood. The letter possibly refers to a son who died within six months of birth.
