Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney writes to D. M. Perine regarding a life insurance policy payment at the Baltimore Life Insurance Company. As he is still in Washington, Taney asks Perine to take the payment to J. J. Donalson. While "I was much broken down in the last two weeks of the Supreme Court," Taney explains that his health is improving and that he "hope[s]... to be in Baltimore on next Monday evening and be ready for court the next day."
