Scope and Contents

From the Collection: This collection contains two letters written by Hayneville, Alabama, farmers to Montgomery merchants T. J. Scott and Sons related to livestock sales.

The earliest letter, unsigned, is dated February 28, 1904, and reports on the condition of mules recently sold by the company, noting that one mule is injured and unfit for work and would be returned to the company. The one-page letter also includes price estimates for the female and male mule.

The second letter, dated April 3, 1904, is written by Hayneville farmer D. Brewier, who reports the death of a mule sold by the company. Brewier describes his examination of the mule, and provides a valuation of his livestock purchases for the year, noting that of the $4,000 worth of livestock he had purchased, the mule provided by the company was the only animal that had died. Brewier's letter is also notable because it briefly describes his relationship with the tenant farmer that had been using the mule.
