Letter to John C. Bullitt from Susan P. Bullitt concerning the health of people enslaved by the Bullitt family, January 20th, 1850.

Description

A letter from Susan P. Bullitt (Oxmoor) to John C. Bullitt (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), dated January 20th, 1850. In this letter, Susan writes and later quotes Samuel: "The servants are generally well, not more than three or four sick now. Samuel is nearly well - mother told him yesterday that you would be married in the spring - with a doleful countenance and a really pathetic tone, he said, "then Mas John wont hunt coons with me no more!" it seemed to be his first thought."
