The Historical Society says the 27 letters include news of the Watson and Robinson families about health, activities, church, births and deaths, slavery, the farm and freedom. Besides Kentucky locations, the letters also mention Mississippi City, Miss.; Brandon, Miss.; and Williamson County, Ill.It would be interesting to read some of these letters.
The society purchased the collection, which has been catalogued and digitized. It's available online at http://www.history.ky.gov . At that site, click on "Search our Collections," choose the KHS collections catalog and search for "Watson and Robinson."
