Mary Lincoln formed lasting friendships with women in her neighborhood, including Julia Sprigg and Hanna Shearer, and exchanged a lively correspondence with many out-of-town relatives and friends.

Julia Sprigg lived in the house behind you and was a widow with children. Hannah Shearer only lived in the neighborhood for a year but corresponded with Mary throughout her life. Emilie Helm was Mary's favorite younger half-sister.
