Description:

Porter King, lawyer, future judge and Perry County representative to the Alabama legislature, writes a love letter dated February 8, 1853 to his wife in Athens, Georgia, Callie Lumpkin King, daughter of Joseph Henry Lumpkin. He states that he is quite lonely without her. He informs her that he is trying to settle an estate but may have to wait for another four months due to a recent Supreme Court decision in a similar case. He also writes about his dog, Cora and that Marion, Alabama looks forward to having a railroad built. He mentions flooding from heavy rains, and reports that all family members are doing fine.
