[Letter from B. D. Dashiell to J. D. Giddings - December 18, 1872]

Description: Letter from B. D. Dashiell to Hon. J. D. Giddings. Dashiell gives some dates when he expects to be home and expresses his desire to be present when the abitrators meet. He then recommends various people to "estimate the work." Dashiell says that the Soule University board has given Kennon and himself the authority to give bond for the cost in the case of Keesee's heirs. In the case of Mrs. Browning's claim, the matter is not yet settled to Dashiell's disappointment. He plans to be absent often from his home and may move to Houston, and so the board would have to elect new officers, but Dashiell is reluctant to pass on his troubles to a new officer.
