 Four Letters from Liberia in the collection of the University of Kentucky's Archives. Primary documents written by emigrants to Liberia, Molly and Alfred Russell and their cousin, Lucy Russell Briant (have not been able to ascertain if there is any relation to Anthony and Jane Bryant in this country or there). The letters date from 1833 to the 1860s.
