William Woodman correspondence

 Collection — Othertype SC-125
Identifier: SFHL-SC-125
Abstract

This collection includes letters received by William Woodman, primarily from his cousins Mary Anna Stradling and Annie Michener. Mary Anna Stradling's letters recount the rise of spiritualism in her community, her views on and interests in literature, and her conception of God. In one letter she muses on the changes among Orthodox Friends, and that they are now little different from Hicksite. Her writings reflect the daily life of women in the 19th Century.

Dates: 1861-1872
