BELLES LETTRES. "During the winter of 1801, Harriet and Maria Trumbull, the teen-aged daughters of Governor John Trumbull of Connecticut, 'finished' their social education in the family of Lady Kitty Duer of New York City. This collection of the girls' letters to their parents presents a daily account of what life in 'this great hencoop of a city' was like for upper-class young women in 1801. The contrasting voices and viewpoints of the two writers is a source of color and texture. The world that the letters describe is a tiny one, but the interplay between Connecticut and New York, the village and the city, the familiar and the strange, and the adolescent and the adult gives it variety and depth.
