It appears to be that on this last page Maud is discussing the marriage of Clara Bills and her departure to Williamson County. Maud discusses her servants Anne and Eliza, one of whom has 7 children who belonged to Maud, but who are now free. She expresses her wishes for David to visit and help her "arrange matters to live." At the end of the letter, Maud discusses issues of slavery, the freeing of slaves, and agriculture.
