Justice Frank J. and Virginia Williams
This handwritten letter, dated May 12, 1863, is from M. C. Meigs to R. J. Atkinson requesting permission for Peleg Clarke to obtain copies of the returns of Captain Springsteed relating to Peleg's property that Springsteed was in possession of. Atkinson's reply on the back of the letter informs Meigs that he had already informed Clarke that he would not be able to share the returns with him and explained how and with whom to make his case.
