DescriptionWilliam Still inquires about Peter Still’s progress toward freeing his family members from slavery, including whether or not their owner Mr. McKeirnon [sic] has agreed to lower the price asked to 3,000 dollars and whether or not Peter has identified how helpful his New Jersey friends can be in the matter; transmits a letter [not present] from Mrs. Reynolds that was sent to Mr. McKim by the Rev. S.J. May of Syracuse; and comments about a disagreement within the Still family regarding financial matters apparently related to property in which Peter Still might reasonably share an interest.
