 File — Box: 4267.001, Folder: 16

Scope and Contents

This file contains one letter written by M. E. Ludington on behalf of Mr. Anson Terry to J. H. Ruggler, chief clerk at the canal department in Albany. Ludington tells Ruggler that Terry "of this place" made a contract with the late Mr. Fish to build "a number of bridges" on the Oswego Canal. According to Ludington, Terry said that an estimate on the work was made either by Mr. Fish or Mr. Richmond; and that the bridges would not be finished by the opening of navigation unless the money due on the estimate was received as soon as possible. There is a design embossed in the top left corner of the letter with the letters "B & G."
