|Scope & Content||
Letter from Orlando Brown (Tuscumbia, AL) to Samuel Brown (Nashville, TN). Orlando discusses the death of his Uncle Preston W. Brown.
Tuscumbia, October 4th 1826
My Dear Uncle
Let us who are at a distance from that scene of horror pour into each other's bosoms the little consolation we can gather. I think upon my deceased uncle as one who was dear to me in blood but still dearer in affection. I loved him for his kindness to me and for his many virtues. I can not go on any further. Poor Louisa-affliction awful affliction has overtaken her. Can my presence be consoling to her-if it can I will go to Nashville instantly.
Your afflicted nephew,
Samuel Brown M.D.
