Summary:To Sarah Brooke Farquhar with Mary M. Brooke -- From Deborah Hopkins with Elizabeth and Sarah Hopkins, 1825-1826. The materials in this collection document the everyday lives of members of the Brooke family of Sandy Spring, Maryland. Correspondents devote their attention to farm or city life, social events, Quaker religious concerns, courtship, vacations and travel, household duties, astronomy, and some business dealings. These letters are between the Hopkins sisters of Baltimore and the Brooke sisters of Sandy Spring. Deborah, Elizabeth, and Sarah Hopkins sent news and gossip to their cousins, Mary M. Brooke and Sarah Brooke (Farquhar). This group of forty letters, all numbered, (spanning three folders) covers the period from March 1824 to December 1826. Letter 20 comments on General Lafayette's last visit to Baltimore; and letter 22 features a brief account of a slave auction.
