 Item — Box: 4, Folder: undated 009

Scope and Contents

A.L.S. To Mount Vernon. She is sending Jenny and Fanny and hopes they will be “useful and conduct themselves well.” His carpenter came by the day after he left wanting some money he was owed as he had a debt to pay. Wants to visit them but wants him to let her know “whether or not it is desirable for me to go. I shall not be in the slightest degree either hurt or offended at my room being preferable to my company.” “Mr. Rutherford … declines keeping Sally another year. I have told Mr. Shepperd to look out for a good place for her but I really think you had better take her down and either keep her at M.V. under your own eye as milker and washer or hire her out there. I think she and Alfred or Gabriel had better make a match.”
