Description:

Letter dated September 16, 1856 from Thomas Reade Roots Cobb, lawyer, Confederate officer, founder of the Lucy Cobb Institute, and Marion Lumpkin Cobb's husband, to Callie Lumpkin King, wife of Porter King and Marion's sister. Thomas writes a letter of condolence due to the loss of Callie's baby. Thomas mentions that Joseph Henry Lumpkin, her father, misses his wife, Callender Cunningham Grieve Lumpkin, and looks forward to her safe return from Callie's.

If Frémont wins, Cobb states that the South should immediately disjoin themselves from the Union.
