Title

Letter from John and Susan Corlis to Joseph, George, and Mary Ann Corlis, 14 April 1816

Description

In the first part of the letter, John Corlis writes to George of the poor real estate market and his tight money supply but states that he will be able to cover George's recent drafts. He hopes that George will get the greatest yield from his crops, especially tobacco. He also comments on George's house expansion, the general state of laborers, and his visit to Halifax, Virginia. He expresses his hope that George will not settle in Indiana due to its "Indian problem." In the second part of the letter, Susan Corlis writes to George, Joseph, and Mary Ann of the family matters and her hope that they are all well.
