Collection consists of two documents dated, Oct. 2, 1798, and Jan. 15, 1802, respectively. The first item is a power of attorney between Catlett Conway and William B. Taylor. The document was written in letter form. He is asking Taylor to act as his agent in a land distribution between him and William Hubert Taylor. The letter goes on to discuss politics in general, the treaty with France, and upcoming congressional elections. The second letter is also from Conway to Taylor. The letter discusses the deeds of trust set up by G.C. Taylor to empower Conway and others to sell his interests upon his untimely death. He died on a trip to the Carolinas shortly there after. Several things included in this trust were securiteis to the Indiana Company. The securities were "negros, a horse and carriage, and furniture." The letter was to clarify Conway's responsibilities.
