Title: Letter: Athens, [Georgia] to Callie [Lumpkin], 1851 Dec. 7
Date: 1851 Dec. 7
Description: On a break from college at UGA, Edward P. Lumpkin writes a letter dated December 7, 1851 to his sister Callie Lumpkin, daughter of Joseph Henry Lumpkin and future wife of Porter King. He reports that [Mary Ann] Cobb had a daughter, Laura Rootes, and that he read in the "Christian Index" a flattering write-up about Dr. Quintard, who is a professor in the medical college in Memphis. He also reports that Callie ought to write to Marion, their sister, and Miss Sallie Jackson as they are impatient for a letter from her. In addition, Edward writes that he is busy during the day copying law documents and that he is currently courting a girl, and mentions that Black Duke, the family dog, has died. He asks Callie not to show this letter to anyone because he is ashamed of his handwriting.
