Tallahassee, Nov. 16th 1910

Dear Emmie,
I am very sorry for this delay in getting the papers fixed, but I was unavoidably detained
at Lanark, so only got home yesterday afternoon.

I have not been able to give all the dates required, and as I had never seen an application
form before I did not know it was necessary to give exact circumstances of services
performed, and now I have not access to authorities, for when I got these references for
Col. Baker I was in Washington D.C. and got the books in the Congressional Library.
Our Library here has none of these histories. The references and other accounts of Capt.
William Maxwell William Harden published in one of the Savannah papers several years
ago, and I got a copy of it. I do not think you'll have any difficulty in securing
admittance, on either application for they are perfectly authentic. Possibly you can find
all the books referred to in some library as Wm. Harden mentions a friend telling him
about grants given to the Maxwells in old colonial records stored in Atlanta somewhere.
So if you should wish to join the Colonial Dames, there is where you'd have to look, also
in White's Historical Collections of Ga.

I left poor Embo at Lanark out in the woods, in a big inn of fifty bedrooms alone, only
she & Willie, with an occasional ghost. I felt like a dog in leaving her so alone, but really
I cannot make up my mind to stay there, particularly as I have no husband to follow
which it would be my duty to stand by. Now you see I have an advantage of you married
woman after all for I am free white & quite twenty one. Poor Embo can hardly smile she
hates the life so much, as usual it is harder on the woman, the sacrifice is always on her
part. Willies likes the life, plenty of fish & hunting and enough company in his other
men who have cottages there. He cannot understand why E & I are not as enthusiastic as
he is. We expect Jennie Farrell up the last of the month to the W.C.T.U. [Women's
Christian Temperance Union] convention. They have all been sick down there, bad colds
& fever.

Hoping I have given you all the data necessary. You'll soon be a Daughter. I am yours.

With love
Annie E. Flagg
