Letter, 2 May 1840, of Ja[me]s G.O. Wilkinson to Col. John Bauskett, Aiken, South Carolina, warning of an alleged act of arson committed by a man then working for Bauskett.

Wilkinson relates news from informants in Augusta, Georgia, that Bauskett had in his employ the man who burned the Eatonton Factory, an early cotton mill which had been established in Putnam County, Georgia, in 1836, “and that he was an Arch Villian, and a Very daingerous man.” The letter further advises that Bauskett discharge the man and make him leave immediately. John Bauskett was part-owner of the cotton factory at Vaucluse.
