Scope and Contents

From the Collection: The collection contains a letter from nephew Hildreth to his uncle with an unfavorable answer to a request for advice concerning a debt owed him by a former British vice consul to Mobile during the Civil War. He explains that Mr. Magee, the vice consul, is most likely insolvent and that he has left Mobile and is living with his daughter. Hildreth adds that if the war was over (he implies a Confederate victory) "our Govt would probably give him something to live on in the way of a consulate - but at present this is not probable."
