Description

Excerpt from The Houmas Land Claim: A Letter From John Claiborne, Esq., To the Hon. C. T. Bemiss, Accompanied by a Letter From the Hon. John Slidell to Mr. Claiborne

Mr. Slidell, the assessors of Ascension parish for years past have valued it at the moderate snm of fifteen thousand dollars and fixed its area at ten thousand superficial arpents. If any one wishes to make a Speculation by buying Mr. Slidell's interest, I learn that he will cheerfully sell it for forty thousand dollars, on a long credit, which sum does not approach the 1 amount it cost him in principal, interest and taxes.

In justice to that gentleman, I enclose you a Copy of the letter which he wrote in answer to my note addressed to him, because you will see from it what has been his entire course in Congress with regard to the claim, and how little he is amenable to censure, in the matter, from fair and impartial men.
