Approximately 20 business letters, mostly TLSs, ranging from
mid-19th century through the early 20th century, with
topics including coal, the Coca-Cola Bottling Co., (complaining that samples
did not meet standards), the Foreign Exchange and Security Broker and the
American Locomotive Company.
The largest portion of the assemblage concerns the American Locomotive Company involving a variety of topics, including a legal matter against the White River Valley Railroad Co., written by attorney N.L. Sheldon and others. Sheldon writes (Oct. 24, 1902), “I find that there are two or three decisions of the supreme court of Vermont that will assist us…” In another letter (Oct. 28, 1902), Sheldon continues, “…There might be some attempt to defeat our rights, through House Bill No. 41…” (Nov. 5, 1902) “…I am informed that the chances are that Mr. Williams will not come forward with $6200 or any part of it, and that this movement of ours may bring about another sale of the road…”
One of the earliest letters (Oct. 7, 1896) from the superintendent of The New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad Company in South Framingham, MA, complains of gates “which protect the private crossing used by you are continually left open…” Other letters involve general business operations. A copy of a letter from the British Internal Combustion Engines Limited details patents of equipment parts.
