ALS, one page both sides, 4.75 x 7.5, June 1, 1836. Letter to Sarah W. Cunningham, in part: "I am truly obliged to you for your kind invitation to my family to attend the nuptials of your Daughter tomorrow Evening…I regret to say that my engagements wholly preclude me. My daughter & son would be glad to attend; but unfortunately for them I have just purchased a new pair of young horses, with which I am unwilling to trust them in the Evening, as they are unaccustomed to our Roads." In fine condition, with a small area of paper loss to the corner of the integral address leaf. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
