Description A letter written from John H. Lumpkin in Washington City to his brother-in-law, William Crutchfield. He says that he will not sell the horse for the price he mentioned in his previous letter (see 2011.036.047). He also provides a description of issues being settled in Congress.

Congress is also settling boundary lines along the northwestern border with Great Britain and Lumpkin anticipates war with England over the issue. He also briefly mentions immigration issues being discussed.
