One letter addressed to Catharine Macaulay from Catharine S. Macaulay dated October 27, 1785. Expresses concern that she has not heard from her mother. She requests a certificate of bill in order to settle her accounts. She comments on the good state of an uncle, about whom a local newspaper reported that he was near death.
These are principally letters from Catharine Macaulay Graham's female descendents. After the death of her husband George Macaulay in 1766, Catharine Macaulay married an Anglican minister William Graham. Most of the letters concern the youth of C.S. Macaulay (later Gregorie), her relations with her mother, Catharine Macaulay Graham, and her stepfather, William Graham. Notable are the series of letters 1784-1786 to her mother while she visited America and France. Later, three dramatic letters in April-May 1791 describe C.S. Macaulay Gregorie's collapse at the news of her mother's death. The collection also includes correspondence of Mrs. Gregorie Brickdale (daughter to C.S. Macaulay Gregorie) and Jane Frazer, a cousin, the last will of George Gregorie (husband of C.S. Macaulay Gregorie) and miscellaneous letters and covers.
