Samuel Henry Reynolds, a member of the Class of 1850, writes to his Mother about his health, conditions in Carlisle, and asks that his father send money for medicine. Despite "not feel[ing] very well," Reynolds notes that "I have considerable of studying to do this morning." Reynolds also admits that he is " a little afraid of" the "one or two cases of small pox in Carlisle." "If any of the students get it," Reynolds explains that he "will leave, and go home where I will be well taken care of if I should happen to get it." Transcript included.
