Title:Letter: Milledgeville, [Georgia] to Callie [Lumpkin King], 1851 Dec. 12
Description:

James M. Lumpkin, son of Joseph Henry Lumpkin, writes a letter dated December 12, 1851 to his sister Callie, describing his journey to Macon and Milledgeville with John Cobb and John Cobb's mother. While in Macon, he visited a few of his friends from school and stayed with Colonel John B. Lamar. James informs Callie that he attended Governor Howell Cobb's levee while in Milledgeville where he danced all night, encountered Miss Mattie Cobb, Miss Sallie Jackson, and Miss Lewis, and became acquainted with Miss Lamar. He also tells Callie that the food at the levee was beautifully arranged in pyramids. Towards the end of the letter, he asks Callie to destroy this letter. James intended to continue his journey to Savannah and Liberty.
