Description: Letter from John C. Wallis to J. D. and D. C. Giddings. Wallis begins his letter by saying he is writing in response to the brothers' taking of the Chadwick case upon writ of error and requests that they send the bona for him to sign. Wallis describes his financial distress and his reluctance to pay his liability. He has even considered selling out the University under the Deed of Trust to a Mr. Browning and himself in order to settle the matter. He asks for the brothers' advice on this matter and for details about payment to E.J. Fettock.
