Title:Letter: Athens, [Georgia] to Callie [King], 1852 May 27
Description:

On May 27, 1852, Frank and Robert Lumpkin write to their sister, Callie King, thanking her for the letter she sent and letting her know how much she is missed during fruit picking season. They inform Callie that Sallie Jackson and Matilda Maxwell will soon be married and that Buck [Grieve?] is spending his college vacation with them. They also inform Callie that their father, Joseph Henry Lumpkin, is currently reading "Swallow Barn" [or "A Sojourn in the Old Dominion"] by John Pendleton Kennedy, 1795-1870. The book contains numerous illustrations of African Americans that they find humorous. Their father has cut some duplicates of the pictures from the book to give to the boys, and they are enclosing one for Uncle Booker, one of the Lumpkin family's slaves. They also accept their sister's invitation to visit her in the fall, if possible.
