typed TRANSCRIPTION of a letter from Corinna (Mrs. C. Aldrich) in Mineral Springs, Florida, to her brother (Mannevillette Elihu Dearing Brown), on March 31, 1839.
She is not so happy on the Suwaney (sic) River, since it is "miserable collection of a few log cabins". Also, there are indian troubles, and the road to Jacksonville will be too dangerous to travel "unless the confounded red skins are routed - at present they are in the counties west of the Suwaney, seeking whom they may devour -- and doing a good business too. Ergo, if not stopt in their bloody career, they will proceed eastward".
