Ellen Craft and Her Mother

August 4, 1865

Here there is a letter from Major General James Wilson, in which he indicates that Maria Smith, the mother of Ellen Craft, is now living with colored friends close to his headquarters, in Macon, GA.  He has shown her a letter Garrison wrote to her.  She is delighted to hear from Ellen, and is hopeful of raising travel expenses so that she might join her in England.
