Title

Letter from William Clark to Jonathan Clark, 14 December 1810

Description

Clark writes his brother Jonathan from St. Louis regarding his intent to sell various tracts of land he owns in Clarksville, Indiana. He wants to make sure that the elderly African Americans (assumed to be enslaved people) living there are taken care of and do not suffer. Hopes their brother George is improving. Reports that the weather has been cold, the river is running with ice, and several boats have frozen in it.
