This four-page handwritten letter is commentary on life in Greenville, South Carolina. The author details his labor in fixing railings, fences, and gates. Additionally, he laments how difficult it is to grow a garden. In fact, he is so busy at maintenance work around the estate that the only time he is able to leave the property is to attend church.
