Offered is a super letter copybook of 125 letters handwritten, some typed by Charles P. Levy of Frederick, Maryland. Mr. Levy is a bit of a character and somewhat garrulous as can be seen in his writings. The letters are an eclectic group some are business related, some personal; about getting a gun, repairs to it, a hunting dog and hunting in general [we note a letter to Governor Philip Lee Goldsboro on hunting laws] and also important legal and judicial matters involving the county and environs. They are all from 1910-1912 and are in good condition. Here are some snippets of this interesting man: "I have on several occasions called the attention of both Judge Motter and Judge Peter to your cases and told them that you were very anxious to have them render their decisions on the demurrers…he promised me to see Judge Peter on Monday and come to a conclusion in the matter. He intimated that the demurrers would be overruled…" "Our December term of court is usually and unsatisfactory one in which to have cases assigned for a particular day as the court has to divide the time between Frederick and Montgomery Counties." "I used to raise Chickens but got tired of them and I have had no pets of that kind for some time and have been considering making a fresh start with pets of some kind which would not only be a pleasure but which would produce some revenue as well…I notice advertisements for guinea pigs frequently in the papers and very rarely see and advertised for sale and this gave me the idea there must be a fair demand for them…I intend to keep a few for my own pleasure…" "I examined the gun and accepted and paid for it. The gun is in fine condition except the very bad dent in the right barrel. Won't you kindly tell me what caused the dent and whether you have ever shot the right barrel since it received the injury and if so what effect it has on the shooting qualities and recoil of that barrel. In other respects I am very much pleased with the gun…" Letter to Parker Bros Meriden Connecticut…"I own one of your GH grade hammerless guns with Damascus barrels. In some way or other the right barrel has gotten a dent in it. The dent is apparently a slight one and yet it is perceptible on the inside of the barrel, it is about the size of the small 1 in this type. Do you consider it safe to use the barrel in this condition? Can you take the dent out and if so what would be the cost?" "I bought eight guinea pigs about 3 weeks ago and four of them died soon after I got them…" "Queen is still lame she goes sort of sore and stiff like a dog often does the day after hard days hunt or like a very old dog. I am unable to locate the seat of the trouble, sometimes it seems to be in the left shoulder and sometimes in the right hind leg but she does not flinch or show any signs of pain when you examine or press on these places…I gave her a two hours run in the fields yesterday a week ago but was not lucky enough to find any birds…" "What I want is a level headed steady going bird finder that will point every bird found and not one that chases all over the country and flushes as often as it points…I have a dog now that I need not pay attention to whatever he is not fast but finds more birds than half dozen of the race horse kind and he is just as steady as the last hour of the last day when he points you can eat your lunch and he will stay on point while you get through…" Overall G.
