1860 Norfolk Virginia Letter Runaway Slave In Jail Lincoln Elected

1860 Norfolk Virginia Letter Runaway Slave in Jail Lincoln ElectedReading to Servants SlavesThis is a fantastic 12 page handwritten letter from a woman living in Norfolk, Virginia from 1860.It has great content throughout and says in part:I heard this morning Uncle Tom come to tell me that Emily was in jail.He says 3 drunken men brought her to the Edgemont yesterday evening and said they were going to carry her to jail.He begged them to leave her their told them she was not a runaway and she said she was not, but they would take her to jail, of course it was to get $5.I wrote John Tabb a note telling him to see about it and replied he would, but when I came in from church I found a note saying he would attend to it until tomorrow, so the poor girl is in jail the whole night, oh the trouble I have in my dealing with men if I only had a plantation to put these servants on.I can never have any peace while they are hired in this way.After reading to the servants I went to Mr Meredith’s…If only I were free from the responsibility of these servants I think should certainly join you.There is great talk of disunion now but it does not give me much thought all we can do is to trust to Him who ruleth all things.I think there is but little doubt that Lincoln will be elected but even that may not cause disunion…Nancy, Delia, Aunt Grace, Uncle Tom, Aunt Phoebe and all the servants send best love to you…Be sure to add me to your favorites list!
