    Mrs. Stokes, thank you for a wonderful lecture on Diaries and Letters. I recently purchased your book, Carolina Love Letters, that I hope to begin reading soon. I love reading diaries from our Southern women, who lived during the War for Southern Independence. I found a pdf version online of one of your recommended diaries by Emma LeConte.
