I. Invitation to David Harris

RC (Mrs. H. Cavendish Darrell, Riderwood, Baltimore co., Md., 1945); addressed. The parts in polytype printing are in TJ’s hand; the name, dates, and address are in the hand of William Short. Not recorded in SJL.

The Editors are indebted to Dr. J. Hall Pleasants, Baltimore, for his kindness in bringing this apparently unique specimen of polytype printing to their attention, as also for the identification of the recipient as David Harris (c. 1752–1809), a prominent merchant and banker of Baltimore.
