[Letter from Maud C. Fentress to David W. Fentress]

Date: 1850~
Creator: Fentress, Maud C.
Description: Letter from Maud C. Fentress to her son David discussing news from Bolivar, Tennessee. The letter is extremely faded and hard to read. The last page of the letter can be read in places and is not as faded as the beginning of the letter. It appears to be that on this last page Maud is discussing the marriage of Clara Bills and her departure to Williamson County. Maud discusses her servants Anne and Eliza, one of whom has 7 children who belonged to Maud, but who are now free. She expresses her wishes for David to visit and help her "arrange matters to live." At the end of the letter, Maud discusses issues of slavery, the freeing of slaves, and agriculture.
