Taylor, Kate (Huntington). Letter, 1869

Date
1869
Abstract
1 letter from Taylor to Sue, relationship unknown. She describes her frustration with Miss Lyman, who is immoveable when in opposition to students (unlike more malleable faculty like Dr. Raymond) and will not allow her to drop Latin and take German instead. Miss Lyman also prevents her from walking to a church service in Poughkeepsie (Taylor took an omnibus instead). Taylor is too afraid of Miss Lyman to accept an offer to stay with acquaintances she sees at church for that night, but instead decides to make the visit the following week on Washington's birthday (a holiday).
