Description

A resident of Bristol, Florida argued that races should not mix if it is against God's will. The letter cited Boston's history, international history and north/ south aggression. The resident believed in the superiority of the white race and claimed politicians in the north were unqualified. "There is not a damn drap[sic] of Yankee blood north of the Potomac or the Ohio Rivers that will ever enforce race mixing."
