Most of this collection is correspondence between the Hodges (1830-1880), land and estate documents (1815-1890), and receipts.  There is also some correspondence between the Read family and the Holmans who were in France in the 1920s and 30s. 

Folder 13 includes a letter dated February 8, 1911, from Roland, who at the time was in boarding school (Mercersburg Academy) in Pennsylvania. Addressed to “ma and pop,” this letter details his activities in school.

The earliest item in this collection is in Folder 14 and dated September 18, 1780 (or maybe 1790). It involves a transaction for 10 shillings and 6 pence.
