 Item — Box: Small Collections Box 27, Folder: 1
Identifier: id178924

Scope and Contents

John opens by telling Joseph that he offered Mr. Low $200 dollars per year to work as a young hand fields that John owns, which is similar to what Joseph pays his young hands. He tells Joseph that he hopes Mr. Low will perform as well as Joseph's young hands, and if he does not, John might send Mr. Low over to Joseph's farm, for his supervisors are known as being harsher than John's. He also tells Joseph that he has some workers that live up in the mountains, and that they do a good job for now, but he is not certain how long that will last.
