Of interest is a January 1, 1863, letter from L.F. (?), Wm. T., and G.M. Simms to George W. Hamner, concerning sale of a slave, "Wyatt," who was "put in jail" since he is "too much of a man of his own head to hire out any more." The Simms write that Hamner "can take him [Wyatt] at two thousand dollars -- and not one dollar less" and ask that "if [Hamner] can give that sum for him please let us know without delay as we intend to take him to another market soon."
