John Arthur, Columbia Furnace to Joseph Arthur, 1812 January 15

 Item — Box: Small Collections Box 27, Folder: 1
Identifier: id178933

Scope and Contents

He tells Joseph that there is a load (of ore?) that is too large to haul in and must be cut up before it can be transported. Mr. Sanford, an employee of Books and Accounts, has been sent over the ridge on pretense of collection money, but John thinks that his true intention is to visit his friends. John wants Joseph to come to Columbia Furnace so that they can both investigate Sanford's business. John concludes the letter by telling Joseph that they started hauling ore from the Three Mile Mountain yesterday, and with a little improvement the load will do very well.
