Two letters from D.C. Russell, a lawyer from Albany, New York who is visiting Houston, Texas to his wife, Hattie. In the second letter, Russell reports that he fell ill and was cared for by a very kind black nurse who claimed she was once a slave owned by President Monroe. He reported that he was able to make a full recovery due to the attentiveness of this woman but that her care and the business dealings with others cost him a great deal of money.
