Abstract

Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 3301. Letters of Reverend Learner Blackman Davison to his brother Dr. David Davison, Hawesville, Kentucky. The Methodist preacher writes cheerfully from Henderson and Hopkinsville of his travels as a circuit rider in Kentucky: his hosts along the way, including a family he found living “in the dirt”; his overworked horses; his popularity with African Americans, old women, and children; and the split of the General Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He tells David of his intention to remain unmarried for a few more years, and to leave his papers in David’s care should he be called from “labour to rest.”
