Scope and Contents note

Letter from Lou Wright of Logansport, Indiana, to John G. Lenny* of Madison, Indiana, dated October 1867, discusses a contract between Wright and two other people, Colby and Mrs. Emerson. Wright explains to Lenny that Mrs. Emerson has requested payment outside the payment plan arranged within the contract for property Wright had purchased. He asks that Lenny speak with Mrs. Emerson and explain what he can and is willing to pay. Wright ends the letter saying, "The letter of Mrs. Emerson was written by a lawyer the language shows that and I hope she is more of a lady than to be made the catspaw of some black-hearted villian."

*Last name is suspect as Wright's handwriting is not clear enough to make a determination without any doubt.
