 Item — Box: Small Collections Box 27, Folder: 1
Identifier: id178917

Scope and Contents

It begins by saying that the furnace has been doing so badly that when he returned, it was advisable to just blow out. The hearth is also damaged, and so John has asked Mr. Blackford to make arrangements for the necessary replacements. He says that he is going to tell Mr. [Benjamin?] Pennybacker to get his pig metal from Joseph while his furnace is being repaired. John has made a settlement with a Mr. Kenorick for $100 for money he was supposedly shortchanged while working at the new house and kitchen.
