Why we like donations!

1815 Asher Merrell

(Double click on the underlined to get the link to the pdf)

This letter from 1815, discussing a lawsuit to recover some money, is part of a long series of letters concerning the Merrill family and others in New Hartford and elsewhere. Some volunteers have been steadily scanning them in; once finished the letters will be returned to the family. Isn’t the 21st century digital age wonderful!? It might have solved Mr. Meacham and Mr. Merrill’s issue of payment (running almost a decade) quite quickly. Or maybe not.
