Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 3324. Letter, 24 December, 1856?, of Samuel W. Mitchell, Danville, Kentucky (where he graduated from Centre College in 1857 and from the theological seminary in 1860) to H. B. Craig, Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Mitchell tells of his profitable resale to area Presbyterians of books purchased from an agent, and of meeting a “very fine” young lady. Describing Christmas in Danville, he notes the noisy firecrackers and the visibility of local African Americans, who uncharacteristically venture into the cold under the “impulse” of the liberty granted them during the holidays. He inquires about the state of Jefferson College in Canonsburg, and also mentions Elders Ridge Academy, McIntyre, Pennsylvania.
