Letter, Barnes Blanchard, Centerville, New York, to Mr Hazen Blanchard, Peacham, Vermont
Barnes reports on local agricultural and commercial conditions. "English grain" came in well but prices for produce and beef are generally low: ". . . I suspect it is on account of an cessation of Business in our Markets Money is scarce more so then common produce is low of all Description . . . ." Lewis spent the summer making bricks. Also notes the general "contention and strife" provoked by disagreements between persons of different religious denominations.
