Hendricks writes to Finley concerning the illness of prisoner J.G. Ward. Ward's family has learned of his recent "attack with bleeding of the lungs." Apparently, several of Ward's relatives died very quickly of the same malady. Ward's sister would like to have her brother released so that she can care for him during his last days on earth. The remainder of the letter is a brief discussion of politics. [Hendricks was elected to the Ohio State Senate in October of 1848]. Abstract Number - 1107
