Summary: This is a collection of letters to Mary ("Polly") Riché, Hildeburn's great grandmother. Many of the letters are from Christian Amiel and Sarah Bard primarily on family, personal, and social matters with only occasional comments on contemporary events. There are also some Alice Swift (later married to Robert Cambridge Livingston) letters, largely from Charleston to her parents in Philadelphia, 1771. In addition, there are Hildeburn's transcripts of the letters with drafts and notes for an intended publication, "A Trunkful of Old Letters from Loyalist Ladies in Revolutionary Times."
