Miss. Ophelia had written a letter to the Shelby's describing how Tom had been sold off. Unfortunately the letter got lost in the mail for a while and took a long time to arrive at the Shelby home.

Mrs. Shelby had to wait until all her husband's affairs were settled until she could send her son George to find Tom.
