These letters graciously have been shared with the Victorian Web by Eunice and Ron Shanahan; they have been taken from their website. The letters give an insight into the daily lives and concerns of 'ordinary' people without whom history would not exist. The letters are a wonderful example of how much history may be gleaned from such sources.

This letter is quite hard to read, as it was written with a quill pen, and in a very fancy handwriting. It was addressed to Charles Turner Esq. Charlton Place Near Canterbury Kent, by his sister, Sarah Spalding, from Devizes 29th April 1800.
