Letter, 6 September 1835, of Elizabeth J. Foster, Spartanburg District, , S.C., to her cousin Frederick Hawkins, Greenville C[ourt] H[ouse], S.C., acknowledges receipt of Hawkins’ letter and comments in passing on the sickly state of the region as well as on area deaths and marriages.

Foster notes that those living in the region appear “to care but very little about the welfare of their souls by their conduct yet at the same time...some person joins the church nearly ev[e]ry meeting” and further laments, “in the way of christ I for one comes on very slow I fear that I shall never find the lord it appears as though there is no saviour for me.”
