|Scope & Content||
This letter from C. O. Vinyard in Lancaster, Texas to his father and mother (probably the Vinyard family here in Roanoke) was written on December 21, 1860 and contains opinions on the election of Abraham Lincoln, secession, purchase of land for which he is asking his father to send money, horses, his new baby George, who wanted him to meet him at the riverboat landing, his mother and her health, and Lou who may have been the wife of C. O. Vinyard. He also asks about sending the Negroes to Texas where he needs them. The spelling is very bad and the writing not much better.
