Porter King, lawyer, future judge and Perry County representative to the Alabama legislature, writes a letter dated March 1, 1853 to his pregnant wife Callie King, the daughter of Joseph Henry Lumpkin, who is in Athens, Georgia. In his letter, King tells his wife that he loves and misses her. King also thanks Callie for her letters and asks about their son Paul. Talking about their unborn child, King tells her that he hopes that it will be a girl. King informs her that he is still ditching around the plantation and that he is going to dine with Thomas Walthall later in the day.
