Title:Letter: Athens, [Georgia] to Callie King, [Marion, Alabama], 1853 Dec. 16
Description:

Callender Lumpkin writes a letter dated December 16, 1853 to her daughter Callie King expressing deep sympathy and consoling King over her loss of a child. She reports local events around Athens, Georgia such as Professor [Charles F.] McCay's acceptance of the Mathematical Chair at South Carolina College in Columbia; John B. Cobb's purchase of Hench Hull's lot and Cobb's imminent move; Colonel Grant's return from New Orleans; and the yellow fever and cholera scare in the west. Marion [Cobb] (another of Lumpkin's daughters) will stay at home for the time being because of this threat.
