He writes regarding several business and legal matters relating to his recently widowed sister. The letter specifically addresses the sale of several slaves, against Marshall's wishes. Text (in part): "I was a good deal surprised the other day at a letter from Mr. Pollard to my son stating a very expensive & troublesome controversy which had taken place respecting the execution levied on my sisters dower slaves which had terminated in their restoration. I am sorry to this on several accounts."
