Notes

Scope and Content:
Correspondence, business account notebooks, official marriage, deed, estate records, and a manuscript memoir. Collection includes family correspondence ranging from James I in 1884 to James III in 1882, the bulk (3 boxes) of which chronicles the business and personal affairs of James III. Major subjects covered include the Second Seminole War in Florida, the Civil War, the Andersonville Prison in Georgia, and business operations characteristic of the nineteenth century. Other topics include yellow fever outbreaks in Florida, frontier life in north Florida, Spanish land grant claims, and family history. Researchers may find the ongoing, regular correspondence between James III and McNaught useful for topics relating to business practices of the period. Of particular note is the handwritten autobiography of James III, dictated in the year before his death. The collection is arranged chronologically.
Abstract:
The collection includes correspondence, business letters, account books, and a memoir manuscript created by members of the Ormond family of Florida.
Biographical:
Captain James Ormond I (175?-1819), born in Scotland, commanded the brig Somerset. He owned a plantation on Exuma in the Bahamas, but then took advantage of Spanish land grants in Florida. He settled near New Smyrna, Florida, where he was later killed by a neighbor's slave. James Ormond II (179?-1829), also born in Scotland, came to Florida with his wife, Isabella (neé Christie), and their four children after a failed business venture. They lived on the Damietta plantation, near St. Augustine, Florida. James Ormond III (1815-1892) was born in Mayfield, Scotland. During the Second Seminole War, he volunteered in the Mosquito Roarers militia as a sergeant. Ormond married Elizabeth Chaires in 1844, with whom he had nine children. His business ventures included the Atlanta Paper Mill, one of the first paper mill operations in the South and other enterprises with his partner William McNaught. During the Civil War, Ormond worked as an adjutant at Andersonville Prison. He moved his family to Canada and England after the war, returning to Atlanta in 1867. He later came back to Florida and settled near the remains of his former plantation, Damietta. The town of Ormond, named for him, was incorporated in 1880.

DEzA SIR-The undersigned would respectfully invite your attention to the enclosed abstract of
assets and liabilities taken from his schedule in bankruptcy, filed in the office of the Register, J. Ward Gurly,
Esq., No. 57 Camp street, New Orleans, La., with notes and remarks explanatory of the same.
It is due to the petitioner to state that until a short time before filing his petition it was not thought
that the necessity would be forced upon him to take a step which he so much deprecated.
Having effected arrangements for an extension of time and postponement of executions on most of the
accommodation paper, by which he was so seriously involved, and his personal creditors manifesting every
disposition to indulge him-he confidently hoped that he should have been able to overcome the pressure
then existing until the corporation for wilich he was indorser to so large an extent, might be able to effect
arrangements which would satisfy creditors, release him from the existing pressure on account of said en-
dorsements, and thus enable him to go on without further embarrassment till times were more propitious.
The arrangement alluded to, however, failed for want of compliance with condition upon which the agree-
ment was made; subsequently an assignment of property by said corporation was made to petitioner
for the purpose of mutual relief, but judicial proceedings bad advanced too far for such process to arrest the
sacrifice of said property; a noble effort was then made by one of the largest creditors to enable the under-
signed to control the assets above mentioned, which it was known would be sacrificed, to continue the business,
and by the aid of the good will and patronage of a large line of customers, to work through the embarrass-
ments; for reasons which it is not necessary to mention here, this effort was likewise unsuccessful.
Thus the petitioner found himself confronted with obligations for nearly seventeen thousand dollars
for which his endorsements and joint obligations were held on accommodation paper, and that a judgment about to
mature, (obtained against him as endorser) would be pressed to execution and seizure. Hence, the alterna-
tive was forced upon the petitioner either to see his assets pass from his personal control and be sacrafied in
mid-summer, and in the midst of an appalling state of business depression and suffering, to satisfy one or, at
most, two claims on endorsements, or avail himself of the provisions of Congress, to place his assets in the
hands of all his creditors, to dispose of as they thought best, either through an assignee, or by a composition
with the undersigned-in the one case it is to the interest of all to dispose of the property in the manner
that will realize the largest proceeds or effect settlement supposed to be for their best interest, in the other
case, the single creditor having advantage, and sure of his prey, usually adopts the most direct method
known to the law without regard to the suffering of debtor or sacrifice of other creditors. The petitioner
convinced that the objects of the bankrupt law were not merely to mitigate rigorous legal exactions, and ruin-
ous and needless sacrifices in time of general depression and suffering, but to afford some protection to
indulgent and sympathizing creditors, whose unwillingness to distress the debtor, has postponed all
effort to collect by suit until too late to share in the partition of his assets, he would have been recreant to
the dictates of gratitude as well as indifferent to the claims of the sternest equity had he hesitated to secure
by the course adopted an equal share, however small, in the proceeds of his effects to all claimants upon his
estate.
As to the losses on personal account, the abstract accompanying this circular is a sufficient illustra-
tion-the reduced value of real estate, stocks, and stock in trade, the proportion of worthless stocks, notes,
accounts, etc., speak the language of the Limes through which we have been passing.
*It will be observed that the petition was filed on the 9th of July, and questions may arise as to the
cause of delay in holding the meeting of creditors. It is sufficient to reply that the resident creditors have
been scattered by the prevailing epidemic, mail communication with a number of them suspended on account
of quarantine restrictions, the Register himself was prostrated by the fever, and agents holding power of
attorney for some of the creditors have died; these facts, added to the general distress making it next to
impossible to give attention to business, are enough; but even if the meeting could have been held earlier it
has not been a time when it would have been to the interest of the creditors to attempt to realize from
the assets.
The estimates of value of stock in trade, real estate, stocks, accounts, etc., were made before the late
epidemic, of the effect of the latter on values, and the probabilities of realizing on accounts, etc., as was then
expected, we must leave each creditor to form his own conclusion.
As to the probable proceeds of property at forced sale in the present condition of depression which
prevails in this city, the intelligent creditor needs not be advised.
The length of time required by an assignee (or person out of the business) to collect what may be
collectible, among nearly two thousand accounts, scattered over several States, ranging in amounts from one
to sixteen dollars, and the expense to be incurred in accomplishing it, and whether better and safer to accept
the composition offered, or risk realizing as much or more, in this way, you must be the judge.
Petitioner has resided in the State of Louisiana more than th irty years, his domicile has been in the
city of New Orleans over twenty years; he thinks he has the good will of most of the debtors, as well as
a large personal acquaintance with them; with these advantages he thinks he can realize enough to pay the
amount proposed.
AMOUNT OFFERED IN COMPOSITION.
The petitioner after advising with friends and creditors, who are supposed to be best qualified to judge
of his probable capacity to meet obligations out of his peculiar assets, does not feel that it is safe to undertake
to pay more thaii TWENTY PER CENT., PAYABLE ONE-HALF SIX MONTHS FROM THE DATE OF ACOEPTANCE OF THE
PROPOSITION, AND ONE-HALF FOURTEEN MONTHS FROM THE DATE THEREOF, assuring you however that no
legal discharge from just debts shall release him from the moral obligation to pay in full, should auspicious
circumstances and an improvement in the times ever enable him to do so.
THE TIME FOR HOLDING. MEETING.
The time appointed for holding a meeting of creditors to vote on the proposition, is Thursday, Nov-
ember 28th, 1878, but as that day has been appointed by the president of the United States, as a day of
National Thanksgiving, it will be adjourned till Thursday, December 5th, 1878, at 2 o'clock P. M.
If consistent with your views to accept the offer I make and continue your confidence, 1 shall be grate-
ful for immediate attention, as the time is short and does not admit of delay; every creditor on the schedule
not voting is a negative and has the same effect as if he voted against the composition.
If you have not proved up your claim, please do so at once before a Register in Bankruptcy, Notary
Public or United States Commissioner, and if not in your own power to be present yourself, be kind enough
to-appoint a power of attorney to represent you; if you have one already please instruct him and let me know
who he is, that I may confer with him.
With many painful regrets for the necessity which compels me to offer such an adjustment as that con-
tained in the above (which is the best I can do), and hoping that I may be able to fully prove that your con-
fidence was not misplaced,


I remain, very truly,


ROBT. J. HARP.
