Description G. S. L. City -U. T.y., 24th Sept. 1858. Although Alfred Cunmiing was usually addressed du this expedition <is "Governor," he hvo other Ln.ppropi tides: colonel dnc.1 judge. An unHtled newspaper clipping dated 23 May 1859 in the Cummirig Papers stales fhiit hi the swainps of Florida, in the Indian Territory and in Mexico, attached to the army.... Whether as a complime is sometimes famili.iHy rallocl 'The Judge.' " [De. /ear Anne,] ing We received your last letter, dear Anne, dated 9th Aug. about a fortnight since-and were glad to hear you had recovered from your recent illness-about the same time came a letter from Cornelia, dated some time in March last! It was marked "forwarded or politeness of by Mr. Alexander" & it was directed to "Mrs. Col. Cumming." Mr Alexander never came here, -received counter orders -and Alfred is not known here by his long-held title of Col. So there were two reasons for its delay. I certainly should have answered immediately so kind & polite a letter as it was had I reed it, and shall do so now soon. Cornelia, like yourself, talks of "perils" & "discomfort." The newspapers (some of them) told sad stories about us, & so it is not wonderful [no wonder?] absent friends should have been uneasy, especially when the mail was so irregular 91
