Title Manuscript/typescript report
Dates of Creation not dated
Scope & Content A three-page typescript describing pioneer life near the Virginia/North Carolina border. Titled "ROCK CASTLE GORGE/SQUIRE DILLON," the geography, geology and history is detailed in mountaineer eloquence. It is disturbing that this information has no known source, but at least we have a beautiful description of a by-gone era.
