Edmund Doyle


These letters are the first of a series of thirteen written by Edmund Doyle, their representative, to members of the firm of John Forbes & Co. (successors to Panton, Leslie & Co.) from their trading house on the Apalachicola river between 1808 and 1817, in some of which mention is made of the intrigues of Capt. George Woodbine in that region. As an introduction to this series there appeared in the October, 1937, issue of the Quarterly a paper by Mark F. Boyd entitled Events at Prospect Bluff on the Apalachicola River, 1808-1818.
