Title:Letter: Athens, [Georgia] to Callie [Lumpkin King], 1851 Dec. 2
Description:

In this letter dated December 2, 1851 from Athens, Georgia to Callie Lumpkin [King], her mother, Callender Cunningham Grieve Lumpkin writes about family matters, how much Callie is missed at home and Marion Cobb's illness. Lumpkin thinks Cobb's illness could be related to the recent death of Cobb's daughter, Lucy Cobb.
