Summary "The Websters has the rare distinction of containing both sides of a correspondence between an "Old Army" officer and his socially prominent wife, one that reflects both their private lives and many of the public events of the times and that interweaves their responses to one another's experiences. In addition to revealing much about the military and the social history of the era, these letters show how ordinary people reacted to conditions beyond their control and how they coped with the pursuant hardships and strains."--Jacket
