I have a letter that she wrote to her daughter Frances in 1869. It is difficult to read, but my Aunt Frances Fleming had typed the parts that were legible. She addressed it "To my own Dear Child" and she signed it "Mother H. Westcott". She describes herself as very busy with the household and seems eager to get relatives from Cheshire to visit them in Iowa. She said Ann was in poor health with a cough, but was teaching nonetheless, and that Alice was teaching.
