Undated letter (possibly from 1855) from Marion Lumpkin Cobb, wife of Thomas Reade Roots Cobb and daughter of Joseph Henry Lumpkin, to Callie King, wife of Porter King and Marion's sister, about her recent illness. She touches upon her daughter Lucy's health. She mentions the visit of Sallie Bird and details the news of their acquaintances, intimates, and family. She sends her affection to her sister and her nephew, and discusses recipes and patterns, making reference to Godey's Lady's Book and Crosland's book Memorable Women.
