A letter from Mildred Ann Bullitt and Martha Bullitt (Louisville) to John C. Bullitt (Lexington), dated November 18th, 1844. Mildred writes on the health of enslaved people at Oxmoor, saying, "David looks wretchedly and suffers very much. The balance of our invalids are just so." Martha, in her portion of the letter, writes that "the only thing which varies the monotony of our life is occasionally a fuss with the negroes . . ." She writes that their father sent Henry Ballard "down the river about a week ago and today Caroline has absconded," at to which Martha wrote that she hoped she was caught because "she seemed perfectly desperate they say."
