Title Charles Cassedy to Maria Breedlove regarding a biography of her father, James Winchester
Date 10 November 1838
Author Cassedy, Charles (fl. 1838-1839)  
Recipient Breedlove, Maria  
Document Type Correspondence
Content Description Cassedy is currently writing a biography of Mrs. Breedlove's father, James Winchester. He asks Mrs. Breedlove to have an engraving of her father made as a frontispiece for the book, which should be "as faithful to the truth of the countenance as the book itself will be to the character of the man." He expects that the upcoming presidential race will excite political controversy, and thus make the biography very popular.
