[Letter from William Chappell to J. D. Giddings - November 2, 1872]

Description: Letter from William Chappell to J. D. Giddings. Chappell begins by stating that he has seen a copy of the order that the Soule University Board of Trustees gave to the Building Committee to hypothecate all of the estate real and personal in order to secure a loan to build a "stone edifice." However, the committee failed to include the Rock Building and donated lands in the hypothecation, and this failure is not the fault of the Board of Trustees because it was explicit in its instructions to include all estate real and personal. Discussing a different matter, he explains how William Keesee with a black man purchased D. Ayrs' land, which had been given to him by his father in Alabama in 1837 or 1838. The deed to Mr. Ayrs' land was not made until after Keesee's death. Ayrs knew that the land had been donated, but Chappell does not know whether he deeded it to the university or his heirs.

[Letter from Thomas C. Thomson to J. D. and D. C. Giddings - November 8, 1871]

Description: Letter from Thomas C. Thomson to J. D. and D. C. Giddings. Thomson first describes how on his trip to Caldwell he received a notice from F. A. Mood concerning his son's tuition at Soule University. He has given Mood a "draft" on the brothers for fifteen dollars. In the postscript, he offers to send D. C. Giddings a list of rejected votes and illegal votes that would have voted for him in the election. Ed Hudson had been told to register some voters shortly before he was removed from his position in the registrar, and since he had no official notice of his removal at the time, the votes are still valid, even if Governor Davis does not agree, according to Thomson.
