Abstract:

Material collected by Gordon for a proposed biography of Cocke includes ca. 300 pages of notes and transcripts of Cocke's correspondence with Thomas Jefferson, Joseph Carrington Cabell and others; Gordon's own correspondence regarding Cocke; and miscellaneous material including a bibliography, a list of Cocke's contemporaries and relatives, an outline of chapters for the proposed book, and five clippings on the James River and Kanawha Canal.

Of interest is material pertinent to the freed slaves sent by General Cocke to Liberia including a letter from Elliott Cresson to W. McLain introducing Cocke; letters from Monrovia from James, Peyton, and Diannia Skipwith; and newspaper articles on Liberia 1941-1948.

In his letter to Cocke, 1838 January 30, James Skipwith describes their passage on the ship "Caroline Steavens," homesickness, fear that he will not earn enough to redeem his wife and children, desire to join a church, and hopes to meet in heaven if he dies.

In a letter to Cocke,1838 January 30, (that appears to be a continuation of one printed in Randall Miller's "Dear Master") Peyton Skipwith requests goods; describes the imprisonment of a Francis Clarke for attempted murder of his wife, and the drowning of two other men after a snake got in their boat; and sends greetings to family and friends.

In a letter to 1834 February 12, Diannia Skipwith reports on her safe arrival, the death of her sister Felicia, her dislike of Liberia, her desire for an education and her hopes to return to Virginia, the contrast between wet and dry seasons, and greetings to family and friends.

The collection also contains clipped signatures of Daniel Webster and John Quincy Adams.
