Letter, November 25, 1846, Edwin H. Ewing, Nashville, to S. W. Carmack, 3 pp.: ''The Chancery Court at Franklin is over and nothing has been done in the case ex parte of Ellen W. Call and others. . . The first step taken . . . was to file a petition in the name of Ellen W. and Mary Call infants by their next friend Ellen Kirkman, praying the appointment of a Trustee under the will of Thomas Kirkman, and praying that Mrs. Kirkman might be appointed that Trustee. . . Under this petition Mrs. Kirkman was appointed trustee, but did nothing as directed in regard to passing her account etc. . . our best course might be to strike directly at the liability of Mrs. K. and the sureties on her bond. . .''
CALL FAMILY PAPERS
Separation Sheet for Letter, June 29, 1841, Richard K. Call, Tallahassee, to Mrs. Ellen Kirkman, New Orleans, 3 pp., regarding business and family matters, including a suit against him which he would pay ''to get rid of the scoundrels, if the times were not so hard. I want to see my dear little Mary very much, but I know she has every possible care and attention . . . and I must content myself until I can pay you a visit either at New Orleans or Nashville. . . [I am] anxious to know something about your future arrangements. Nashville . . . is too cold for you and New Orleans is too unhealthy. Port Leon I think is the very place for you to come and live with me and my daughters. . . It is improving more rapidly than any little place I have ever seen, and will become the largest, and most business place in Florida. . .''
