Letter from Charlotte Cushman to Emma Crow Cushman, Aug 3, 1869
Cushman informs Emma of some political news and is pleased that her "prognostication of three years ago" is turning out correct. Isa Blagden visited Cushman and spent a day with her. The pain sometimes prevents Cushman from getting a full night's rest but she is feeling better.
