In part: “Mr. James Walker is now at Nashville, and will attend to the business you speak of…Will you see him as soon as you receive this…He will I have [no] doubt stay a day or two, to attend to the business…I hope you will see Walker and I have no doubt he will attend to the business, and I desire very much that he should for it would be very inconvenient for me.” Polk also adds a postscript, signing with his initials, “J. K. P.” Intersecting folds (a couple passing through the signature), and small stains and ink blots affecting a few words, otherwise fine condition. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
