December 6, 1838 letter from George H. Laighton at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, to Rufus Dow, Esquire, at South Hampton, New Hampshire.
Mentions matter of George H. Laighton against George Wingate.
From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:
George H. Laighton of Portsmouth, New Hampshire - perhaps George Howe Laighton (1809-1852), who married Louise G. Flagg
Rufus Dow of South Hampton, New Hampshire - perhaps Colonel Rufus Dow (1805-1871), who married Sally Fitts
George Wingate - perhaps George Wingate (1805-1885)
If you have alternate possibilities for any of these men, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
