MS-700: Katharine Wright Haskell Papers


In this letter, Katharine Wright writes to Henry Haskell from Marshall Island over a week. She talks about the regret she feels for the contents of a previous letter, her daily life on the island, her feelings regarding Henry, Orville, and their relationship, particularly focusing on their age as being part of the problem. She speaks of Henry's travel notes and her friends. It seems she spent several evenings playing roulette and mentions have herself, Orville and her companions filmed doing activities.
