AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Elizabeth Macarthur's letter of March 7 1791 to her correspondent and friend Bridget Kindom offers 'a private history of the daily, intimate transactions between black and white.' Bremer's essay examines 'the entanglement of private and public, personal and colonial, points of view ... by first contextualising ... [the letter] in terms of colonial epistolary and women's writing (p.57).
