Letter. Maria [Nicholson] Montgomery, New York, New York, to James W. Nicholson Esqre P.M., New Geneva, Pennsylvania
Response to a letter from James W. Nicholson sent care of Maria for Albert Gallatin, now in Washington. Word of family members, particularly the Chrysties, in the wake of Adden Chrystie's death. Reflections on her father, James Nicholson, and on her husband James Montgomery: "Oh! dearly did I love my Father! never was there a more noble heart than his — he rests in peace, and lives in more than filial tenderness in my remembrance. He whom I last lost I thought bore in character and disposition many traits of resemblance to my Father. and never wife loved Husband more fondly than I did mine — now both are gone — all are gone — and I feel like a blasted Tree — oh may Jesus from this time forth be my all and in all!!—"
