This collection consists of a letter from Amos D. Smith to his daughter, Hannah Cooke Smith, written from Columbus, Georgia, 1833. In the letter, Smith says he is glad to be in a community of good schools, as the education of children is very limited in places he has traveled through. He attributes this to political institutions.
