- Index to SKETCHES AND RECOLLECTIONS OF LYNCHBURG by Margaret Couch Anthony Cabell (1814-1882) under the pseudonym "The Oldest Inhabitant" compiled by William Frederic Holcombe (1827-1904) of New York, New York. Collection consists of original typed index with handwritten corrections made by Holcombe in 1891; typed index along with a preface written by H. R. McIlwaine (1864-1934), Virginia State Librarian, published by the Virginia State Library in BULLETIN OF THE VIRGINIA STATE LIBRARY, volume XIII, no. 3 in 1920; and two copies of a facsimile letter, 2 January 1890, from George Kennington, business agent for Neil Burgess County Fair, New York, New York, to Jesse Wineburg, being a testimonial for a tonic called "brain salts."
