Here is your first look at some of the contents of the mail packet delivered on Saturday to the Acastas attending the Jane Austen Festival in Louisville, Kentucky. Special thanks again to all who participated in this project and helped to make it a success! More images to come!

|A letter to the ship's chaplain, the Rev Mr. Griswold|
