Title:Letter: Athens, [Georgia] to [Porter King, Marion, Alabama], 1852 Apr. 25
Description:

Callender Lumpkin, wife of Joseph Henry Lumpkin, writes a letter dated April 25, 1852 to Porter King, lawyer, future judge and Perry County representative to the Alabama legislature. She tells King that he is dear to her, as her daughter Callie King loves him. She reports that although Callie's family and friends in Athens, Georgia will miss Callie as she starts her new life in Marion, Alabama, she has made them all proud of her for her devotion to duty and her new family. Lumpkin reports that Judge [James Archibald] Meriwether, Speaker of the House of Representatives, has died suddenly; Judge Nesbit is ill; and typhoid pneumonia has taken many lives over the past winter. In closing, Lumpkin tells King she will pray for him.
