Dear Mother

I take the present time to rite these few lines to you to inform

you that I am well and hope these will find you enjoying the same blessing.

Have written to you three letters and have never received answer nor have

I ever received a word from home since I left there, therefore hope you will

rite me as soon as you get this for you know I must feel very uneasy about

you and my dear sisters. I have been here more than a year and have been

engaged in business. Then for the last eight months I have been clerk in one of the
.- /"/ ^ A /
largest stores in the /..,.. C a short time since to

build a house for myself. I have ,,I me a pleasant lot (< 7/ v'',


, ..?.. t.,.-.. a small house on it and .,-, jL. lumber for to build one

more. I have traveled through all the Southern states and have visited all

the *ii ic here to the south and at last have settled down here

where I expect to spend the rest of my days for tis a beautiful country and

living is very cheap and oranges are as plenty as apples are to the north.
I expect to have ^&y A .., going to New York soon on some business but

I do not expect to come home for I shant have no time to spare but s. 2

_.j .. if I do not stay but one day for want to see my native place

once more -t.-' -- probably it will be the last time for tis a long way

to come and I don't like the sea. I have been very sick since I have been

here and once I was so low that they did not expect me to live from one
( *- :., i ... ., -,
A,., to another. I had two doctors to me all the time and one night

when two men were 4^> with me they thought I was S^^-^ to my

long p #_ and pronounced me dead, but you see they were mistaken. Tell

Sarah and Annee not to forget me for I have many a long wish to see them


and if you see any of our folks give my respects to them but here I am rioting

to you when you may all be in the silent (W..>-- for all I know but may God











grant otherwise, but as there must be an end to all things so must

Dear Mother,

Your respected favour of the 2 May has just come to hand. Your

postmaster made a mistake and sent it to Illinois instead of Florida and

was forwarded from there here. I was very glad to hear from you and my

sisters for it is the first time since I left home and I am glad to hear

that you are all well. I have been sick but at present enjoy good health.

I was in New York last winter and I should of come home but the vessel

did not stay long enough for me to. I bought four thousand dollars worth

of goods and brought them here and I own the handsomiest store in the place

and I have done a very good business here the lat winter. I expect to leave

here next week for Baltimore and New York and I shall be in Warren about

the middle of August but I shall not have time to stay more than two or

three days. You say you want to come to Florida, if so you can come next

Spring-. I ^ c to build me a new house this fall and them you can

live in it. But I want Sarah to come home with me this summer to keep house

for me and my cU.. I have got a black girl that does the work so she

will have nothing to do. I will dress her well and send her to school. If

she will come you must make her some good clothes and I will pay for them

as soon as I get there. I would of sent you the money you wrote for but I

am afraid this might take such a wild goose chase as yours did and then

where the devil would the money got to. Tell Ann Merriah that I will buy

her the handsomest bonnet she can find. So goodbye till I see you all.


J. B. Mason











Mrs. Mary D. Mason New York, Sept. 13, 1834



Dear Mother,

I have not yet received answer from my letter to you dated the

12th of August. I shall leave here in a few days for the South and

I will write you again before I leave. Direct your letters for me to

Florida. Inform me if you know anything about Pitchers family.

I forgot to ask you when I was there. Tell Sarah she must write me a

letter and tell me how she likes her school. I am writing some letters

to Florida and am in a hurry. My love to little Amy and give my respects

to Mrs.

Yours in haste

Dear Mother,

I arrived here today in the ....from New York on some

business and shall leave here tomorrow back to New York on my way to

Florida. I should of been very glad to come to Warren if I had time

but you must wait till spring unless I come North this winter. Tell

to hear that you was all well. You complain of hard times there. Business

is very dull here at present. I shall not be able to come home this winter nor

to New York as I expected but I should be very glad to have Sarah come out here

this winter. I will send her the money to pay her passage, send her to school

as soon as she gets here and I will give her a house and lot worth one thousand

dollars and I am going to build one more house on the same lot and I will give

her a clear deed for the whole. If they is any vessel that sails from Warren

to Savannah she can take passage there and they is a steamboat that runs from

Savannah right here to Jacksonville.If they should be a vessel going before you

S right to me and receive answer from me let her come and as soon as she

gets I will send her the money to pay her ; ... but if she don't want to come

this winter I shall be to home in the spring and then she can come with me.

Walter did not come out with I have wrote for him to come and live

with me for I am lone some here alone. I hope you send Merriah to school

for I want her to get good learning. So she can come here and live to for I

hope soon to be able to help you all so that you can all live better than you do

at present. When you answer this write me a good long letter and tell me

all about -. folks and my old grandfather does and how all our folks

gets along and the next letter that I write you I will send you some money.

Jacksonville East Florida, January the 21st, 1836



Dear Mother,

I take the present time to send these few lines to you. They leave me

well and I hope will find you all the same, though our country here is full of

torment and war. The Indians are spreading in every direction. No place is

safe from them. The town here is full of women and children and a great many

has left the country entirely. Several families have been obliged to run and

leave everything but the clothes they had on and before they were out of sight

their homes and their all were in flames. No one can tell the distress but

them that has seen it. I have witnessed more than I hope it will be my lot to

again. I went out with the army when they first started. Sometimes we would

see women and children flying in every direction and presently we would come

upon their house in flames. Every night the country all around was lit up with

the burning of houses and plantations. One Sunday we came upon a party of

Indians that were burning a house. They ran into a swamp but we followed them

and killed five of them. I have been in two battles with the redskins but got

off unhurt. The last was in a hummock and swamp. The Indians all got behind

trees to shoot at us and we had to do the same. While loading my gun behind

a small tree, an Indian shot two balls into the tree at me but they did no

harm. just arrived with an account of two battles that

was fought three days ago. There was about 20 men killed at a place called
Tomoko 75 miles south of here the other. The Indians attacked a hundred and

twelve men and killed all but three. On Monday they killed a man 40 miles up

the river and scalped him in the daytime within a few roads of a fort where

there was 40 men stationed. We are building a fort here for we expect nothing but

they will give us a brush if they do attack us at '2 God only knows

what would become of us for I don't. For we have neither men nor arms enough


to keep off fifty Indians. What few men there is here are running away every








chance they can get but we expect a vessel from Charleston every day with

troops to our relief. is at an end here. All the stores is shut up

and the merchants are all failing. Property can't be sold at no price or I would sell

mine and but as it is I shall stay and defend it. I have moved out of my new

house and let it to a gentleman who had to leave his plantation to come here

for safety. All of my buildingsat present rent for 220 dollars a year. I

have nothing more at present worth writing to you. I hope that you will

write me soon for I have not heard nothing from you since the 2nd of November.

Give my love to all.

Yours with respect,


J. B. Mason

Dear Sister

This leaves me well and I hope that it will find you all the

same. I arrived here last night with an '. to the governor. It

is four hundred miles here from Jacksonville and I had only 6 days to come

in and I got here at the time but I rode my horse most to death. It ft ... ,-

three days steadily. I shall leave here tomorrow for home and as soon

as I get back I will rite you again. I got a letter from you two days before

I left. The last one that I sent I didn't pay the postage for the office was shut.

I shall get $150.00 for coming here if my horse don't die I shall make $100.00

clear.

Tell _____ and Maria howde.

Dear Sister,

I take the present time to address these few lines to you. I

arrived home last week safe but I had a very bad time to travel. I found

a letter in the office from you. I am very much obliged to you all for

wanting me to cme home but I cannot comply with your wishes. In the first

place there is nothing that I could do there for I want to be in some

S business and I like to live here better than at the north. I

do not never do I expect to live there again. I have made money here and

I can make more. I think that I shall get married here and settle down

for the balance of my life. I am at present keeping store for a friend

of mine here this fall. I shall be going to business for myself. I am

going to build a large livery stable which I think will be very profitable.

I intend to put all the money that I can get into property. The news has just

arrived here that the Indian Chief has offered to make peace and if they accept

his proposals the War is done, if not I don't know when it will be ended. If

they don't end it soon, the whole country will be ruined.


Give my love to Mother and Ann

Dear Mother,

I take the present time to send these few lines to you. I received

both of Sarah and Ann Merriah's letters. My reasons for not answering them

was that I have been veryLiqk .sjQ that the doctor gave me up. They did

not expect me to live from one hour to another and for that reason I did

not want to alarm you. Had I of died all my property was fixed so that

you would of got it all. I am perfectly well now but the town has been

nothing but a grave yard. They was not well ones enough to take care of

the sick. The darned Indians are all round us here. Some of the folks

are moving as fast as they can but I intend to stick to the last. If they

burn my houses they shall burn me in them for I had as .... be Tead as

loose my property. As soon as everything is safe here I am coming home.

If I can I shall come by the first of October if not I shant come till the

spring and them I will stay all summer with you. Nothing more at present.

Dear Mother,

I take the present time to address these few lines to you. I am well

and hope that you all are the same and I should of answered Sarah's letter before

but I had nothing to write. The Indians keep us in an uproar all the

time. There is no safety here from them. The Company that I belong to is

ordered out again for four months and our time won't be out till last of February,

so you see that I shall not be able to come home before spring. I am first

Lieutenant of the company and I expect to have to go up the river 40 miles above

here to take charge of a fort right among the red-skins. But if they don't get

my scalp I don't care. I am afraid that they won't be able to whip the Indians

this winter for they don't we shall all have but stock from Florida next summer.

I am very busy here finishing of a large warehouse that will cost me 2000 dollars.

It takes all of my time and all my money, to go to school.

I have sent you three -;,-^ papers and paid the postage on the letter. I

,, not on the papers for we don't use cents here. Nothing more at present

so good bye to you all. Write me as soon as you can.
