Title:Letter: [Athens, Georgia] to Callie King, [1856?]

Undated letter (possibly from 1856) from Marion Lumpkin Cobb, wife of Thomas Read Rootes Cobb and daughter of Joseph Henry Lumpkin, to Callie King, wife of Porter King and Marion's sister about an upcoming visit. Instead of visiting Callie, the family will go to the springs for a curative. She delivers all the news of family and local friends, which is mostly centered around illness. There has been an outbreak of dysentery in both Athens and Macon. She also touches upon Miriam Lumpkin's upcoming marriage to a Mr. William M. Nichols, a member of the legislature from Clinch County. They would marry in 1856.
