On offer is an interesting, original manuscript relic of North-South trade being an 1843 handwritten letter dated Mobile Alabama as field representative A.C. Mathewson writes his head office of jewellers Mathewson Allen and Co. of Rhode Island. Addresses to the company his correspondent was likely his relation Nathan Fuller Mathewson, [born: 7 Sep 1814, Warren RI, Marriage: Susan Green Wightman about 1840 in Providence RI, Died: 27 May 1901, Jeweler and partner from circa 1835 to 1848 with Bradford Allen in Providence RI as MATHEWSON & ALLEN, listed in the 1836 city directory with a shop on the corner of Pine and Rhodes Streets] regarding the state of his gold and silver trade dealings. He reports he has had almost no business in Mobile but frequently mentions he expects better in New Orleans. He also notes business dealings between Rhode Island, New York and Charleston South Carolina too. Some small loss from opening at the seal and a mouse has done some nibbling. Overall G.
