Letter, December 22, 1860, Richard K. Call, Lake Jackson, to Mr. Hart (editor, Tallahassee Sentinel newspaper), printed as a 1-page broadside: ''. . . never at any time, or on any occasion within the last ten years, have I seen so much unanimity, so much enthusiasm, in the support of the glorious American Union, as on this day, appointed for its destruction by political leaders. . . There are no men in your State, sir, who will resent an insult, or avenge a wrong to Florida, with more . . . spirit and pride than they. There are none who will resist the Black Republicans with more firmness and energy -- none who will take up arms sooner -- none who will fight more bravely, under the stars and the stripes of the Union; but they will not be led like slaves -- they will not be lead, or driven, into evolution, rebellion and treason against their country . . . I doubt not, sir, that [their voice] is the voice of nine-tenths of the working men of Florida. . . They will never yield any constitutional guarantee of African slavery -- but they will ''submit'' to the law while it is constitutional, and they will maintain the Union while it is constitutional . . .'' Following this is a postscript dated December 23 in which Call announces a ''Glorious anniversary of a glorious night, Jackson's first victory on the banks of the Mississippi. The 8th day of January 1861 will be celebrated at the Lake Jackson Church. . . a day of thanksgiving to God -- a day of honor and gratitude to the memory of the great Chief. A Portrait of General Jackson taken 35 years ago will be displaed under a banner bearing a Star for every State of the Union, which has not ''"ified'' the Fugitive Slave law and denied the Supreme jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the United States. . .''

Letter, February 12, 1861, Richard K. Call, Lake Jackson, to John S. Littell, Germantown, Pennsylvania, 31 pp., lamenting the destruction of the Union, placing the blame on ''the angry controversy arising on the institution of African slavery,'' and providing a lengthy apology for slavery and secession: ''The institution of slavery, then, demands the earnest attention and the unprejudiced consideration of every American citizen . . . [n]ot as an abstract question of right or wrong, not as a blessing or a curse, but as an existing reality, for good or evil, thrown upon us by inheritance . . . for which no man of the present day is in any manner the least responsible. It should be considered as it is, an institution interwoven and inseparably connected with our social and political system . . . and a national institution, created by the American people and protected by the Constitution of the United States. . . Portugal, in 1503, sent from her possessions on the coast of Africa the first African slaves to America . . . Here was an animal, in the form of man, possessing the greatest physical power, and the greatest capacity for labor and endurance, without one principle of his nature, one faculty of mind or feeling of heart, without spirit or pride of character, to enable him to regard slavery as a degradation. A wild barbarian, to be tamed and civilized by the discipline of slavery. . . This race, so distinctly marked by nature with inferiority, physical, moral, and mental, as forever to forbid amalgamation, and keep it distinct from our own, has become a great class of laboring, civilized people, domesticated with the white race, and dependent on the discipline of that race for the preservation of the civilization it has acquired. . . The North and South can never live in peace together except on terms of perfect social and political equality, therefore a separation, with war, and all its attendant calamities, will be far better than a discontented unity, with the confinement of slavery to its present limits. . . rather than bear this insult, and endure this calamity, I prefer that the last Southern man should fall, on the last battle-field of the terrible war, in which we may soon be engaged. . .'' Includes Littell's reply to Call dated March 4, 1861, informing Call that the letter was at the printer's.

Letter, May 18, 1828, from Hermitage, published December 1905: ''While absent at New Orleans, my political enemies have opened a general and systematic attack upon me -- the last dying struggle of a desperate coalition. Clay . . . has written a book -- Clay ought to have remembered the adage, 'Oh! that mine enemy would write a book'. . . Cartloads of . . . the most base calumnies are circulated by the franking privilege of members of Congress. Even Mrs. J. is not spared, and my pious mother nearly fifty years in her tomb . . . has been . . . held up to scorn as a prostitute -- inter married with a negro -- and my oldest brother sold as a slave in North Carolina. . . My philosophy is almost worn out, but all my enemies expect is to urge me to some rash act. This they cannot do until the election is over. If my hands are not tied by the event there will be a final settlement. . .''
