1837 Letter from A. K. Moore at Skowhegan, Maine, to John T. Heard, Esq. at Boston, Massachusetts
The letter contains the Moore's response to a job offer relayed by Heard on behalf of Boston & Eastern Railway. It looks as though the word "Machias" is struck out. Moore admits that he is young and of limited experience.
Heard may have been John Trull Heard (1809-1880), whose biography appears on page 19 of Memorial Biographies of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, which still operates today.
I'm hoping that a reader will have information of an A. K. Moore or A. ? Moore, who was in the Skowhegan, Maine, area in 1837 and who had a brother, as mentioned in the letter. Perhaps he was Albion K. Moore or Albion K. Parris Moore, but he would have been exceptionally young for such responsibility.
