Autograph Letter Signed, “Geo. Haven.” Three pages, 7 ¾” x 9 ¾”. Meriden, MA. October 4, 1849. Addressed on integral leaf to “Liberty F. Thurber, Washington Vt.” Haven comments upon a suicide and later writes, in part: “ … Politics is what I don’t have much to do with now for I am drove very hard with study and finally I never had much to do with them.

N.H. has now one Abolition Senator, one Democrat, two Democrat Representatives, one Abolitionist & one Whig. So they are even in the House & Senate …”
