An Early Sackville Love Story
Edited with Introduction and Annotations by W. Eugence Goodrich
These six recently rediscovered letters of High Sheriff and Deputy Crown Surveyor Stephen Millidge to his beloved wife, Sally Botsford Millidge, tell a charming, if ultimately tragic, tale of love, separation and longing to be on the other side, at home with family and friends.
Written between 1789 and ca. 1795, they offer a rare glimpse into some of the conditions of life during Sackville’s early history.
