 Item — Box: Small Collections Box 27, Folder: 1
Identifier: id178916

Scope and Contents

Graham asks Arthur to take his nephew, Charles Harwood into his care, to be a clerk at Union Forge. Graham has talked with Mr. [Benjamin?] Blackford about Charles' failings, and Blackford thinks that Charles can save himself and become "useful to society," and if he does not, that will be no one's fault but his own. Graham tells Arthur that he saw Mr. Blackford and Arthur's sister at Springfield this morning. Graham then goes on to a detailed description of the debts and advances various people, including Arthur and Thomas Blackford, owe each other.
