Early 1861 Alabama slave related letter, 1p. 4to., written by Samuel L. Cochran, "At home," Jan. 9, 1861, addressed to "Maj. Will. S. Miree, Perryville, Alabama," reading, in part: "I have…sent the boy, Abe…to you…I made a second trip in hopes of making the note, otherwise the negro would have been returned sooner. I hope you will not attribute this delay…on my part to retain the boy contrary to agreement. I never would have moved the boy from your possession had I not relied on…Mr. Person, whom I had every reason to believe true…I regret thus to quibble about so small a matter, but I cannot avoid it…Sam. L. Cochran." Light silting, else VG.
