William Eliott Allard Letter, 1874 July 31

 File — Box: 4257.002, Folder: 3

Scope and Contents

Two letters written by William Eliott Allard of Haverhill, New Hampshire, on one sheet of paper to Mr. John Currier and Mrs. Laisey Purkins. Both letters ask about friends. He asks Currier about how the haying went and then cryptically explains that he would have liked to help but that he is in jail. He then asks Currier for fifty cents to get some tobacco. In the letter to Mrs. Purkins, he asks her to tell someone named Allan that he will pay "him all up if he will wate [sic]." On the back of the paper he wrote "And when you write to me send in care of Mr. Stevens, Haverill jale, N. H."
