Abstract:

Papers, 1890-1904, including letters, a broadside, notes, and a receipt. There are two letters. In the first, 1880 July 4, from Oates, in Abbeville, Barbour Co., Ala., to Col.?, is discussed a bill introduced into the U.S. Congress by Hilary A. Herbert in which the U.S. Senate would decide in the occasion that two governments should be established in the same state in opposition to each other. Oates revealed his position on that issue, and his friendship with Herbert. In the second, 1896 Jan. 8, from Oates to Governor Joseph F. Johnston, is discussed the $300,000 loan at six percent interest Oates contracted for the state of Ala., $100,000 on his note as governor, and $200,000 on Ala. Auditor's warrants. The loan was made through General R.N. Nelson with a New York bank, the Mercantile National Bank, via a note. There is a copy of the note at the bottom of the letter.

The broadside, 1896, entitled "Open Letter by the Governor," presents Oates position on the $300,000 loan after the Populist paper, "The Plain Truth," accused him and several others of personally profiting from the loan.

The notes, n.d., detail Ala. participation in the Civil War, including a listing of major generals and brigadier generals, some comparisons between the Union and Confederate armies and prison deaths, and an estimation of the monetary cost of the war.
