EXCELLENT EX-CONFEDERATE'S LETTER FROM JACKSONVILLE, FLA. -
1866. 4pg letter, approx. 8" x 10", datelined"Jacksonville, Fla., Mch. 5th, 1866", from
E.W. L'Engle to his Aunt in Raleigh, NC. Excellent content on the conditions in Jacksonville
during occupation by Federal troops & the uneasy relationship between them & the local
population. Incl:"Jacksonville presents a very thriving and business appearance. I have
never before seen it so crowded with persons as it now is. New houses are going up as
fast as the labor and materials can be furnished, both of which are very scarce.
Steamboats and vessels are all the time at the wharfs taking in or discharging cargoes
and nearly everybody except a few idle negroes seem busy. The society of the place is
improving. The old citizens are very generally coming back and rebs already
predominate, and would control everything if the military were removed. That odious
power is still here but interferes as little as possible with our affairs. The rebs and yanks
keep apart and have no commingling socially, religiously or otherwise, as that is as it
should be. Self respect and the preservation of even negative harmony demand it...What
has become of Bradley Johnson [likely Confed. General Bradley T. Johnson, commandant
of Salisbury, NC POW camp & the man who burned Chambersburg, Pa.]& his wife? Where
does he propose settling? Wherever it is, I presume he will return to his profession..."
With 4pg letter from his Aunt in Raleigh, dated May 18, 1866, who has forwarded L'Engle's
letter to a relative in Charleston, S.C., along with the transmittal cvr w/blk RALEIGH/N.C.
