Rezumat / Summary: This article refers to the correspondence between Sevastia Mureșianu – the mother and her children in Vienna. Family of six children, three children studied in Vienna and the fourth started a business there. The first Mureșianu to arrive in Vienna was Ioan – the first born (Iancu as he was called by his family), who was put in charge with the supervision of his brothers and sister. In 1864 came Aurel, in 1867 Elena and in 1875 Iacob. The generous correspondence between Aurel and his mother helps us understand this period. Vienna represented for the Mureșianu family the loss of their first born son and the unfinished studies for Elena and Iacob. For their other son, Aurel, Vienna contributed to his future career as editor of the newspaper “Transylvania Gazette”.
