James Aslinger Letter

 Collection
Identifier: MS-1955
Abstract

In this letter, James Aslinger asks Pleas Centers to "get me a Petition and get the states atty to sign it for me and send it to the Governor to try to get me a Pardon." Should Centers succeed, Aslinger promises that he will "reform in every Respect and try to lead a new life." He points out, however, that his current situation is not entirely of his own doing, "since if it haden't have been for Thos Patterson I would never have been in this trouble."
