    Augusta County, Georgia
    The collection opens with a 1798 letter from J. Hall of Warrenton, Virginia, to his brother in Staunton, Virginia, announcing the birth of a son and the purchase of a new tobacco plantation, asking for information about the family and commenting on the need for military preparation to counter the threat of war with France. In 1825 a lengthy letter from T. Johnson of Philadelphia to a member of the Hall family in 1825, fulfills his “promise to transmit you a short detail of the most important doctoring and improvements which I have learned during this session” (Reel 21, Frame 0564) by detailing various medical conditions and some remedies for them. Also included here are letters between Eleanor “Nellie” Hall and John A. Douglas during their courtship and after their marriage and from Eleanor to her mother, Mary Hall.
