Thursday Sept 24th
I have just got back.
from walking and will have
some little time before tea, so
I will take the opportunity to
write home. I wrote to Sarah yes-
terday but it is hard work to write
a letter here, for I know of nothing
to write that will be interesting.
Mary Romer one of my roommates,
is sick with toothache. not home-
sick. I guess; she is going home
tomorrow night to stay until
monday [sic] morning so I shall
as it is just supper time. Please
send some money when you
answer the letter which I hope
you will do soon.
From your affectionate
Give my love to Mother and
remember me to all inquiring

Rachel Eltinge, born April 8, 1847, was one of the six children of Roelif Eltinge (1809-1884) and Blandina LeFevre (1812-1875). Rachel attended the Poughkeepsie Female Academy and went on to marry Solomon DuBois (1839-1924) on November 11, 1875. The couple had four children. Solomon DuBois was known for his fruit farms in Modena and New Paltz, and for raising Holstein-Fresian cattle that he acquired from Holland. These letters are part of the Solomon DuBois and Rachel Eltinge Family Papers (1812-1944).
