  • Letter to Bigelow & Brother, 24 Jul 1848
    Private Collection
    Manchester    July 24th 1848
    Gentlemen --- I write to inform you that Sargent & Sweat of Manchester have failed, & the stock in their store is now under attachment for all it will bare [sic]
          In conversation with Mr Sargent he told me he owed you about $400. --- Also he said his partner went up Country
    [text missing] weeks since with goods to sell & since he left no word has been received from him --- he went to Hanover NH. He had $3000. worth of goods with him & if you could find his whereabouts there would be a fair probability of receiving your demand. They are to appearance slippery fellows & what you do ought to be done soon. My impression is that you cannot secure one cent in Manchester.
    Respectfully Yours
    Josiah M Barnes
    J. & S. Barnes

    P S Sargent has just been carried to Jaile for not paying his Taxes. I have just learned from a man that he saw him Sweat one week since in Norwich Ct ---
