Title

[Letter] 1967 December 5, Washington D.C [to] Honorable Watkins M. Abbitt, Washington, D. C.

Description

Personal correspondence to Watkins Moorman Abbitt from General Alfred B. Denniston. The letter's enclosure pertains to congressional assistance needed by the General's great grandmother in 1856 to rectify a land deed matter due to her husband's death. This suggests that the need for Congressional assistance to constituents was still the same in 1967. Abbitt responded that it "does not look as though some things have changed very much".
