Letter, January 14, 1861, Mary Y. Holmes, Brockport, to Ellen Call Long, 4 pp., concerning the current political situation and personal matters: ''. . . let me tell you how glad I was to hear from the land of flowers and know that one of her daughters at least was right upon the main question of the day. . . I hope no blood will be shed, but fear the matter has gone too far to prevent it. My sympathies I believe are pretty equally divided though as a New Englander it is natural that I should lean to the northward -- still I have many dear friends at the south and cannot bear that we should be at variance. . . I missed you very much after you left the Hotel and began to learn how much my acquaintance with you added to my happiness. I hope we shall meet again sometime . . . I am now busy with ''Darkness and Daylight'' which is being published in the New York Weekly. . . You don't know how fond I am of writing . . .''

Letter, March 8, 1864, George W. Crawford, Bel Air, Georgia, to Ellen Call Long,'' 1 p., thanking her for her ''kindness and care of our son. . . I may further add, that in this fratricidal war . . . I trust that a kind Providence will shield you from the sad necessity of performing a parent's duty or shewing a parent's love, such as you recently exhibited to our son.

Letter, January 26, 1861, E. R. Lea, Philadelphia, to ''My dear Countess of Tallahassee'' [Ellen Call Long], 4 pp.: ''Your Father's views are what I expected from the friend of General Jackson; and his name will endure as one who tried to stem the tide of a fanatical and ill-judged revolution, when those who have inaugurated the Disunion of their Country will have sunk to the oblivion they deserve . . . I cannot help believing that it would be difficult for you to approve altogether of the step into which the Gulf States have been urged by South Carolina. At any rate let your sentiments on these matters be what they may. . . I hope you will come up to see us next summer. I will guarrantee that you shall say and do just what you please without the risk of having your head shaved, and a robe of Tar and Feathers here, Cotton not being so plentiful. . .tell me how you all are: 'Sister Mary,' the baby, None, Vance and all. . .although I expect to adhere as long as I live to the old stars and stripes, and you have decided to sail under another flag . . . believe me to be your sincere friend.''
