The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center has acquired a letter written by the author of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" when she was 10. She describes her safe trip to her grandmother's house from the family home in Litchfield, Conn.; her new baby sister, Isabella; and a dress ruffle on which she had not done much work. The letter, dated March 14, 1822, and written to her brother Edward, was found in the basement of a church and bought by the Stowe Center for $10,000 plus fees from a small auction firm in New York.
