"A color scan of a scrapbook page with a letter and annotation. The letter from the Bureau written by Major J.E. Cornelius orders Everson to James Island, SC to complete a census focusing on ability and poverty. Everson is to settle the claims of Freed people holding possessory titles for land on the island and instruct those Freed people who have not contracted work to do so or they must leave. Everson's annotation mentions that a full report and the proceedings regarding the ""settlement of these 'land titles' under which freedmen had located '40 acres for each adult"" under Sherman's order No. 15 and refugees could be found in his book of retained copies of reports."
