Gilder Lehrman Collection #: GLC03107.00630 Author/Creator: Livingston, John Place Written: New London, Connecticut Type: Autograph letter signed Date: 03 September 1701 Pagination: 1 p. + addr. 30.7 x 19.9 cm
John writes with news of his arrival to New London, where he finds himself busy trying to transport "dearre and appells" from Hartford for the Sloop he and his brother-in-law Vetch had purchased. The ship, which had been "Creaned and Tealeered," is still a few details short of being finished. He also hopes that questions are done regarding "our wines" (the wine he was illegally importing from French Canada). Docketed on address leaf.
