Letter, July 5, 1858, Dr. John Jenkins, Hamilton, Canada, to Richard K. Call, 3 pp., thanking him for his ''kind and benevolent treatment to my Daughter. . .'' and asking ''what will be your price, as low as you can grant it to a Father'' for the freedom of Mary, Jenkins' daughter and Call's slave: ''Through the mysterious darkness that threw a veil between myself and children for many years -- Thanks be to the Great Father. It has pleased God of late to shed Light upon my path and open the way to hear from them, and also give a lenient heart to the owners of Martha to place her in my power to obtain her, for which they have my sincere thanks, and I feel anxious learn from your own pen, your mind and your price, if you will be so kind as to give me an answer.''
