I've created a new collection on our dSpace server in the "Collections for Testing" area titled "Vermont Letters. (http://badger.uvm.edu/dspace/handle/2051/3969)
The collection contains images and may contain transcriptions of letters to and from Vermonters in the antebellum period (1849-1860). The letters are drawn from the Savage, Hubbard, and Vilas family archives at UVM Library's Special Collections. (More info about these collections available in the Finding Aids at: http://bailey.uvm.edu:6336/dynaweb/findingaids
I'm looking for reflections of print culture in rural women's writing as well as evidence of cultural themes and beliefs.
