Richard Apperson papers

About the Digital Collection

Two items referring to a duel between Apperson and a Dr. Holmes, located in Petersburg, Virginia. One is a draft for a handbill denouncing Dr. Holmes, and the other a letter about the printed handbills and other matters connected to the dispute. Items are undated but appear to be from approximately 1800.
