  Creator:   Porter, Anthony  
  Dates:   1841 January 3  
A letter dated "Savannah 3d January 1841" addressed to C. Durand, a merchant of New York and New Orleans. Generally social in tone and thanking Durand for his kindnesses during a stay in Baltimore, Porter also discourses on the scene in Savannah and particularly the difficulties with the cotton crop: "The cotton crop (Sea Island and upland in Georgia) will not exceed more than a half crop." The letter is two pages long entirely in Porter's bold hand.
