Mary Dana Shindler (1810 – 1883). American writer. Wrote under the name M. S. B. Dana. Her writing includes poetry, novels, essays on religion and spiritualism, and, most importantly, Letters Addressed to Relatives and Friends Chiefly in Reply to Arguments in Support of the Doctrine of the Trinity (1846), which traces her conversion from Calvinism to Unitarianism.” (novelguide.com). Autograph Letter Signed. 1 page. 7 ½” x 10”. Orangeburg, Jan. 17, 1848. To Rev. S. Gilman, D.D. “My dear Friend, I received your letter on Friday or Saturday, and, as I hope so soon to see you, and am somewhat pressed for time, will only write to assure you that nothing could afford me greater pleasure than to receive you at my own fireside, and I hope that you will not limit your visit to so short a time as you mentioned in your letter, but will pass the greater part of the week with me, or longer, if you can be absent on the Sabbath. A part of my time will be necessarily occupied with the duties I have daily to perform, but I will manage to have leisure enough to have a good many interesting conversations with you, on the strength of which I hope to exist for some time to come. Human sympathy is so necessary for me, that I can scarcely exist without it. With kind regards to dear Mrs. Gilman and the family. I am yours affectionately, M. S. B. Dana.” An added P.S. at the bottom flows vertically along the left margin; “I will have the books ready for you to take down with you. Let me know on what day you will arrive, and I will have the carriage at the depot for you.” Fine.
