Title

Letter from John Williams, Jr. to Isaac Hite, 13 February 1780

Description

In a letter to Isaac Hite from Harrodsburg, Kentucky, John Williams, Jr., writes about trying to buy large tracts of land in Kentucky, although he claims that all of the good land has been taken by settlements. He writes about a land dispute in the Cumberlands on the Carolina border between Richard Henderson and Thomas Walker. He says that it is one of the hardest winters he could recall and that it decimated the stock at Harrodsburg.
