Transcript Willis Sunday Nov. 24th./78 My Dear Son I have not spoken further to Mr Jaycope about the house, as everything here seems so uncertain. Gaston thinks in case he gets the appointment of Sheriff that it will be more to his interest to live at Montgomery than at this place. And has urged me to re main with them until something definite is determined upon Dunn is trying to make up his bond. Mr. Willber Sandal Brother of Munrow Sandal has agreed to take the app- ointment Collector of Taxes under Dunn and is helping him to make up a bond!!!! And there will be found many other just such democrats I fear, tho Gaston seems to think Dunn will be unable to make up the amount even by getting it in small sums here, and there, as we learn he is doing Mrs. Jordan asked me to enquire of you whether the Co. or District Clerks did not have to employ someone to Copy for them sometimes, and if so would you use your influence in ---------------------------------------------------------- procuring some employment of this kind for Mary Ashe. she said of course the sug- gestion would have to be made to Mrs. Ashe You understand I do hope you will be able to get the expander for Gas, As I am doubly interested Mr Wiggins has about ten or twelve bales of Cotton now in the Gin, and his paying for this place is depending upon it & also to remove Bells Claim. Now if the Gin was to be burned down & he lose his cotton I would lose my trade with Wiggins. This may seem far fetched as we sometimes say, and going out of the way to hunt up trouble, be it so. I wish very much to have see Mr. Ws Cotton gined & sold. And beside what is already in the Gin he will bring several bales more if what is now here can gined so will others bring Cotton If it will not be too much trouble please bring me a pair of black kid gloves No 71/2 I cannot get a Glove here of any kind. Black silk would do as well & perhaps better too as they will stretch, if of a good quality. Affectionately Your Mother Mary Jones
