Title:Letter: Montgomery, [Alabama] to Callie [Lumpkin King, 1852?]
Description:

Porter King, lawyer, future judge and Perry County representative to the Alabama legislature, writes a letter, possibly dated 1852, from Montgomery, Alabama to his fiancée, Callie Lumpkin, daughter of Joseph Henry Lumpkin. King informs Callie that he and his Aunt Wiley will soon be leaving for Macon, Georgia and that he will visit Callie's father when he arrives in Macon. King confesses to Callie that he has written many letters to her father asking Lumpkin for his daughter's hand in marriage, but that he has destroyed them; he will speak to her father in person instead. In closing, King says he will come to see her as soon as possible, maybe on Saturday.
