  • Description

    The bulk of the correspondence consists of a series of letters from Blount Credle to his fiancee, Eunice, during the summer of 1932 while she was visiting relatives in Burlington, N.C. These letters contain comments on various aspects of life during the Depression, including suicide, lack of business, and prices. Several letters from a surgeon, Stuart McGuire, from St. Luke's Hospital in Richmond, Va., (1917) concern the death of O. T. Credle during surgery and a controversy over the charges for Dr. McGuire's services.

    Also included are numerous Hyde County, N.C., land transactions (1807-1918) and an illustrated surveyor's map (1848) by James Latham, reflecting the boundaries of W. H. Fortescue's land. A photograph of O. T. Credle is retained in the collection.
