Scope and Contents

Photocopies of letters:

Frank Clark to Senator Frank W. Sams, (1920) Soliciting his support as candidate for United States Senator from Florida.

Letter from J. I. Dickison, Adjutant General, Tallahassee, (May 14, 1879) to Colonel F. W. Sams, New Smyrna, enclosing commission as Lieut-Colonel in state militia.

Letter from H. M. Flagler, Palm Beach, Fl, (Jan. 2, 1905) to Hon. Frank W. Sams, enclosing check for $250 as his contribution to aid in building the proposed shell road between New Smyrna and Daytona.

From S. H. Wienges, Clerk Circuit Court, Gainesville, Alachua County, (May 24, 1917) to Mr. F. M. Sams & Son. Concerns securing of evidence that someone had been mustered out of a certain Company at the close of the war. He also wrote that he had solicited and secured nearly "1000 letters endorsing Gainesville instead of Lake City for the University of Florida." He stated that he made a trip to Miami for that purpose and gave nearly one month of his time in the cause.

Letters written from St. Augustine (1846) by someone to Thomas Wynn, Jamacia, N. Y. The name of the person who wrote the letters has not been found on any of the ten pages of this finely written manuscript. From content, it would seem to be one or more letters written at different times and possibly mailed at one time, as there is mention of a lack of regularity of mail service. Appears to be personal correspondence with information about family, friends, weather, etc.
