Letter from Maggie Martin to Robert Campbell Martin, Jr., July 5, 1863
Writing from Mobile, Martin updates her husband about the movements of his father, Robert Campbell Martin Sr., who has "determined to return [to Lafourche] & run his Negroes off to Texas," where he will sell them. Maggie hopes that her husband will persuade Martin Sr. not to sell "all his Negroes" and mentions those by name whom she hopes will be spared.
