Title

Letter to Mr. Newman from Corinne Legier Gleason.

Description

Gleason writes to Newman about the letters from Mrs. Pitcher, asking if she could borrow them. She also mentions her brother, Robert, and his health. Gleason attaches a copy of a notice of land for sale in the letter that was taken from the Washington Intelligencer a few years earlier. The notice of land for sale details a tract of land "being in the whole about one thousand acres," called Benfield located in Charles County, Maryland by private contract. This document gives insight into land value in the area, as well as the neighborhood and house that sits on the land. The end of the document includes the next three owners that the land was sold to in 1817, 1835, and 1935.
