About this collection

Maria Howard Weeden (1846-1905) was a prolific writer as well as artist, and often penned down her thoughts in letters to her close friend and confidante, Elizabeth Price, who lived in Tennessee. In these letters, interspersed with samples of beautiful artwork, Weeden talks about the day-to-day events of her life here in Huntsville, her business arrangements and correspondence with potential clients, and her observations about the state of the South after the Civil War.
