Content mainly concerns marriage arranged between a Colonel and a lady of great wealth, and the prospect of both June and Ann finding rich young men to marry, all reminiscent of a Jane Austen novel. Some mention of the Rebellion. It mentions her father printing proclamations offering the rebels a pardon if they surrendered but "the leaders will suffer at all events - there are double rewards offered for them". "I made many people laugh at the story of the officer who used to kill them by the dozen". A scarce letter from the daughter of an officer involved in "mopping up" exercises after the Rebellion. The Fraser Fencibles had been part of the British force defeated at the Battle of Castlebar by General Humbert. 4pp quarto, written both ways to save postage, sent as a Soldier's Letter and therefore rated one penny."
