Letter to ''Lit'' (Matilda Ann Boyd Webb) from her cousin, Mattie A. Boyd, and Sophie Boyd Hays. Mattie is visiting Sophie, her school term in Oxford having just ended. Mattie writes that most of the young men are gone from town, and that ''cousin Robert'' is happy at the army camp. She asks if any positions are available at local schools or with families. Sophie emphasizes Mattie's request for a teaching position and recommends her for such, and mentions that the troops at Union City might be sent to Missouri. 1861.
