- 1870 Dr. Baker wrote a letter to Lucas saying that he was having a hard time making the payments to purchase the plantation. Lucas told Dr. Baker that if he could not make the payments he was going to have to sell the plantation to someone else (Bridges & Williams, p. 250).
Under other circumstances Lucas might have let Dr. Baker stay on the property. However, Lucas needed the money in order to pay his debts.
