1798 Amherst County Consent

This letter of consent from Joh[e]n Sledd was signed in 1798, presumably in Amherst County, Virginia.

I'm thinking that he might have actually written the document himself, but am not certain. The left hand side of the copy I have has been traced over by the person who sent me the copy.

This letter (and the one written by the bride's father) are discussed in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues
