Grenada, Miss.
19 Aug. 1883

Dear Mrs. Anderson,
I have read your letter & will gladly do anything in my power to aid in filling the
land you mention if you will get your brother in law to send me the numbers & general
description of the land for the information of purchasers.
I am so far away that I fear I will not be a very efficient agent for the sale but I
am sure you can not find one who will serve you more willingly. I never loved &
respected any man more than your noble husband & my interest in his family has never
abated and I am much obliged to you for me about the children but I don't think you
ought to have said anything about a "fee." Do you think that anything could induce me to
charge Patton Anderson's family for any service in my power to render them. No my
dear friend I would be only too happy to hear you if I could only find it in my power and
if I can be instrumental in selling this land I shall be amply compensated to know that the
proceeds are to be applied to the education of the sweet & bright daughters of my
honored & valued friend.
My wife & Courtney are in Bon Aqua Springs where I will join them in about a
week. Then I have to go to N York & will leave them in Louisville till my return. My
wife rebels a little at being sent away from home but I am afraid for her & Courtney to
stay here in the summer. Life at a watering place is too aimless for me & hence I have
been with my family but little at Bon Aqua.
Please give my dearest love to your children.
Your friend sincerely,
E.C. Walthall
