Title

Letter from Mary Devlin Booth to Emma Crow Cushman, Nov 10[?], 1862

Description

Mary Devlin Booth writes an affectionate letter to her friend Emma Cushman. She mentions a yearning for Emma which she has "never experienced before" (page 2): "I know if your husband saw this he would call this silly & me along with it: for he does not believe in woman's love. And for the most part I think he is in the right [...] I fancy my heart beats a little faster when you are near me"
