Draft letter from Eleanor L.S. Washington to Ann Pamela Cunningham, 1854 January 9

 Item — Box: 2

Scope and Contents

Draft in writing of John Augustine Washington III. Addressed to "Miss Cunningham" but could also be a response to Louisa Cunningham's letter instead of Ann Pamela Cunningham. Praises the women of the south for their affection for Washington. Does not wish to dispose of the property except to the government of the United States or Virginia and so declines the proposition from the “Ladies of the South.”
