J. Battle letter to Samuel Battle
The J. Battle letter to Samuel Battle (circa 1797; 0.03 cubic feet) documents one piece of the titular relatives' correspondence. The letter is marked "Care of Thomas Maule"; Maule may have been the same Maule that owned a soap and candle factory in late-18th century Virginia. Little information circulates online about either of the Battles, but the contents of the letter should be legible to those accustomed to reading 18th-century cursive.
