 Item — Box: 2, Folder: 4, Item: 3

Scope and Contents

A letter, dated May 27, 1830, from James Lee, Williamsburg, Virginia, addressed to Susan Teagle, Portsmouth, Virginia. Lee says that he is pleased to hear she arrived in Portsmouth safely. He writes that the “Hustings Court of Williamsburg” met yesterday but did not deal with the estate of Mr. Teagle, so things will remain the same at least until the June court session. Lee reports that Susan’s household affairs are managed well by Miss Margaret, and he affirms that he will continue to be a father to her “fatherless children.”
