Title Letter, 1819, Cabell to Watts
Dates of Creation September 13, 1819
Scope & Content Letter dated September 13, 1819 from Benjamin W. S. Cabell of Danville, Virginia, to Edward Watts, Esquire, of Lynchburg, Virginia. Cabell is replying to a letter from Watts. Cabell states that he is unable to pay any of the money he owes to Watts by September 20, 1819. He says he has already paid nearly $8,000 to Watts for property in Lynchburg upon which Watts holds a note, and suggests that the property is sufficient surety for the remaining $9,000 that he owes. Cabell discusses the harm that would result to both if Watts decided to bring suit against him.
