    The correspondence includes a letter addressed to Christie C. Nichols from E. W. Nichols and two addressed to Ransom, one of which is from James Hudson, Ransom’s nephew; the second is signed, but the name is indecipherable. The remainder of the subcollection appear to be receipts for goods and services.
