This handwritten letter, written in 1868, is from Thomas L. Darden to his cousin, John Darden asking his cousin to send the order of eighteen sacks of corn and one pound of pork by a boy named Wash. Thomas goes on to say that Wash will have the balance owed. The paper is ripped along the bottom edge.
