Description
Collection contains a stampless folded letter addressed to William Branch, Birchardville, Pennsylvania with maritime receiving postmark "New-York ship" Aug. 1838. Much of the letter is about the patent medicine business, reading in part: "The medicine business is nothing to what it was, and prejudice is still our enemy. Yet our good article has gained us some warm friends in many parts of the country, that I am not without hopes but that Hall's Pills will again be in demand. In our own family we should not be able to find a substitute for them."
