This partial letter is from an unknown writer written to an unknown recipient. It discusses the troubles that have befallen Clarissa Waldo, sister of Orange Johnson, and how she will be able to go on given her age and her circumstances. According to the letter, Clarissa's barn burned to the ground destroying her hay and killing most of her animals. The writer worries that with it being winter, Clarissa will not survive without a barn and animals. Because it would take too long to rebuild the barn in the winter, the writer goes on to suggest that it may be best for Clarissa to rent out her farm and go live with one of her children.
