Scope and Contents

Letter from Andrew L. Hannah of Falls Craigs Creek (possibly Botetourt County, Virginia) to Miss Polly Semon, dated 1869-09-18. Hannah writes regarding a dispute over money owed for a "negro boy". Hannah alleges that Miss Semon told him not to sell the unnamed enslaved boy as long as the boy lived, which Hannah claims led to a missed sales opportunity during the war and resulted in Hannah owing Miss Semon more money than he thought fair.
