Abstract:

The collection consists almost entirely of letters between members of the Cocke family, particularly Bettie Burwell Page Cocke and John Bowdoin Cocke. The letters convey family news and comment on the difficulties of Reconstruction. One mentions the collapse of a portion of the state capitol and friends killed, and another from a captured officer reflects on the South's defeat, heroism of soldiers and the collapse of morale late in the war. Of interest are two 1871 letters from Mary Ann Randolph Custis Lee describing health, family activities, and life in Lexington, Va. The collection also includes a ledger, 1882-91, from Belmead plantation, and a clipping desribing Edgewood, Nelson Co., the home of Joseph C. Cabell.
