Description

The first page of a letter from James Parker to Charles Steuart. Parker accounts his feeling of bias against himself and the Scots from the Judge in Norfolk. Parker's concerns that he will have an unfair day in court reveal the biases Scots faced in Virginia mercantile communities. Since Parker and most Scots in the region were newly immigrated they felt they were more likely to be treated unfairly.
