Letter, May 28, 1876?, Ellen Call Long (?), Germantown, to ''My Dear Sister'' Mary Call Brevard, 8 pp., regarding the Centennial and various family and social matters: ''If Theodore would only appreciate himself as others want to appreciate him he would soon put under foot all difficulties and . . . make a happy and prosperous future for you all. He promised me that he would try and I do hope he will. . . Your account of the children and Buddy is always interesting . . . I never can understand Theodores apathy - wanting money as he does - for not pushing help on my suit against Executors, if he would give half the attention to it that he gives to defending scoundrels, we would soon have relief. . . I went to a very handsome garden party last week . . . very aristocratic people . . . I went the week before to a beautiful party - found the host had been at my house during the war . . . he lives in elegance and thinks Tallahassee a Paradise . . . he came two afternoons since and took me driving behind the fine houses . . . I smiled to myself to think how you would laugh if you could see me . . . I meet a great many pleasant and complimentary people, and but for my poor broken and lacerated heart I could be very joyous, but the sore place is always there. . . I wish Alice and Jeannie could see the display of dolls in the 'Main Building' . . . these Hotel folks are awfully disappointed, so far from being crowded there are lots of houses for rent and empty rooms go begging . . . the Centennial does not pay yet . . .''
