Marcellus Mckennie letter
This is an autographed letter signed from M. McKennie at the University of Virginia to "Gen. T.W. Dillard" on 30 May 1859. This is likely Dr. Marcellus McKennie (1824-1890) to General Terisha Washington Dillard (1817-1863). In the letter, McKennie urges Dillard to not assemble his regiments at Charlottesville next year. McKennie fears that the young men will be greatly excited by the great number of places selling alcohol with and without licenses in Charlottesville, and that they will consequently "care very little for the restraints of law."
