port, and his providence has brought us safely to this goodly land, where everything needed for the support of man and beast is in abundance.  I want for nothing essential that the world affords, only the good  company of you and some of my old friends.  I think it would be better for you and yours here than where you are.  We have no banks where there are notes to pay off.  I will try to tell you what we have accomplished since we came here with our wagon load, not quite four years ago.  This summer we will milk fifteen cows.  Last summer I sold a great quantity of butter, and this year shall sell a great deal more.  We sell our butter for from 2 to 3 shillings per pound: and for cheese we get 16 and 18 pence.  We have 15 cows, 4 horses, a yoke of oxen, between 30 and 40 hogs and young cattle and 46 sheep, nearly all of our own raising, from which and their product I clothe my family.

I have made since we came here about 100 yards of fulled cloth and blankets.  This year I have made 4 very handsome red and blue coverlets, besides linen and a piece of diaper.  It makes me proud when I put the scissors into a piece of it, for, as you know, it is a thing quite new to me.  We have poultry of all kinds, and frequently go to market with a load.  Turkeys sell for 8 and 10 shillings each, fowls 3 and 4 shillings a pair, ducks 4 and geese 8 shillings a pair.  I have three firkins of lard and a cwt. of butter now ready for market.  And now you will want to hear about my children.  Almira has grown to be a woman.  She is about the size of her Aunt Betsey and looks very much like her.  William A. has grown very much and is now going to school.  He ciphers to the rule of three and is studying grammar.  How are all your children?  O how I long to see you all !  Give my love to all your family, not forgetting Nan, if she is alive.  My children want to be remembered to you all.
Your ever affectionate sister,
Elizabeth Sackett
[to] Mrs. Mary Sackett

Mrs. Elisabeth Terboss Sackett died suddenly in her home in Monroe, Butler County, Ohio, a little less than two years after writing above letter.  Her death was supposed to have been the result of copperas poison contained in some pickles, of which she partook at a dinner party given at the house of a neighbor.

Nathaniel Sackett died in 1848.  He was buried in the village graveyard at Monroe, which during his life time had become a settlement of nearly three hundred inhabitants.  He has founded and named the place and no other man had done so much for it as he.  The sites of its churches, schools, a public park, and a cemetery, were his free gifts, and its townsmen sincerely mourned his loss.

Sarah Woods.  In 1824, Mr. Sackett determined to leave New England with his family and find a new place of abode in the southwest.  From Boston he traveled first by water to Philadelphia, and from thence, after a short sojourn, by wagons to Pittsburg, where he secured passage on a flat-boat, which carried the family down the Ohio River to Harrison's Creek.  From there they, after a short period, again moved in a flat-boat on down the Ohio to Mauckport, from which point they journeyed in wagons through the wilderness to Corydon, Ind., where they purchased a farm; but a little later removed to Louisville, KY., which became their permanent home.  In 1849, Mr. Sackett revisited Westfield, and died and was buried there.

Y.  This regiment subsequently served on both sides of the Hudson and was on duty at West Point when Major Andre was executed.  After the close of the war Mr. Sackett became a resident of New Lebanon, N. Y., and joined the Lebanon company of the Columbia County regiment of militia, which was composed mainly of veterans of the Revolutionary army.  In this company he served first as a private and then passed through the non-commissioned grades to Ensign, receiving a commission as such in March, 1803.  The following year he was promoted to Lieutenant, and in 1805 to Captain.  In 1807 he retired from the militia service with the rank of Major.  A newspaper notice of his death, published at the time, closes as follows:  "He was a soldier of the Revolution, and was one of the guard at the execution of Major Andre Titus, one after another, fall and are deposited beneath the clods of the valley, the few remaining patriots of early days.  Very shortly the death knell of the last one must sound in the ears of those who have inherited the rich legacy left by these patriots."
