December 30, 1837 letter from Daniel Tristram Granger in Eastport, Maine, to Aaron L. Raymond, Esq., Clerk of Courts for Washington County, in Machias, Maine. Court matter, regarding Mason v. Kilby.
Although the year appears to be 1817, Granger was not born until about 1807, so 1827 or 1837 is more likely.
