This is an interesting letter and I’m not sure why it is in the collection except that one of those signing the letter is a Mr. “S. Parke” or “S. Parker.” May this be related to the “Parke” in Katurah Taylor Parke’s family? I don’t know.
The letter discusses the conviction of a Mr. William Chapin for assisting two slaves to secure their freedom and was forced to pay $6,000 because he skipped bail. The anti-slavery people were trying to come up with the money to help Mr. Chapin. ~ CCJ
