Letter, 2 February 1812, of William Lance, Charleston, to David Lance, England
Letter, 2 February 1812, of William Lance, Charleston, to David Lance, England, was penned in response to the latter's request for genealogical information.

David Lance had known William Lance's father, Lambert Lance, at the time Lambert was studying in England between 1765 and 1771 and was attempting to reestablish communication with him. Although Lambert Lance died prior to the time of this letter, his son expressed hope for continued correspondence and a resolution of political differences between England and the United States. The letter also includes references to the family Bible of William's grandfather, Lambert Lance, Sr.
