ALS as president, one page both sides, 6.25 x 7.75, April 17, 1859. Letter to Miss Esther Parke, in part: "I hope you will be able to come to me in the beginning of next week…We have but little news here which would interest you. Mr. Craig will leave for Georgia tomorrow morning. Mr. & Mrs. Cobb & all the family will leave on Wednesday…The information concerning…Fanny is very unfavorable. I fear that she will soon be called away I trust, to her heavenly home. She is a good gal, a patient sufferer & has been much afflicted." In very good to fine condition, with trimmed edges, small splits along intersecting folds, and an ink stain to the salutation.
