- Letter, 10 November 1851, from Hugh W. Sheffey (1815-1889) in Staunton, Virginia, to Gideon D. Camden (1805-1891) in Clarksburg, Harrison County, (West) Virginia. The letter appears to have been written by another individual, and signed by Sheffey. He seeks support for George W. Summers (1804-1868), the Whig candidate in the Virginia gubernatorial election of 1851, and requests Camden to do everything he can to produce a large voter turnout. Sheffey also dismisses the rumors that Summers is an abolitionist, and assures Camden that Summers is an ally of the people of the western part of the state
