Ann McClenaehan to Mrs. (Val?) Peers, Mount Air, 8/29/1797 <I imagine Mr. McClenaehan may have told you what a terrible fall I had a few days before he went up, indeed it was a great mercy I was not entirely a criple -- the wound is still very sore, & I am very unwell, -- it is so immediately on the joint of the knee, -- now I think it is reduced to a certainty that my DANCING DAYS are over, -- I thought so once before, -- but I have been attempting it at the barbacues here this summer, -- however, as I hate an ATTEMPT at any thing, -- I will in future sit & look on & behold the ELEGANT GRACEFUL FIGURES which are generally display'd on the floor in SWADDLING cloaks, which get so entirely entwined round their feet, they are obliged to kick out one side, & then the other to disengage them.> Valentine Peers Collection, Manuscripts, Kentucky Historical Society.
