This collection is made up of 7 letters that Emma A. Clark and her husband, Daniel G. Greene, wrote to her parents in the 1840s and 1850s. Clark wrote the first 4 letters to her parents and sister from New Haven, Vermont, where she kept house for her uncle and taught school. She related news about her older brother Augustus, who was a carriage maker in Buffalo, New York, and requested her parents' advice about the possibility of joining him there. She advised her sister Delia about the rewards of single life. Daniel G. Greene wrote one letter to Emma's parents in 1849 and the couple collaborated on letters in 1854 and 1856, in which they discussed news of their small children and shared their desire to see members of the Clark family.
