Fine Letter Edward Augustus Holyoke Signed Debt Payment Confirmation

This letter was written by famous doctor Edward Augustus Holyoke in 1803 confirming payment of debts that were owed to him by one Aaron Wait for medicine and treatment. It is signed clearly by Holyoke. Holyoke is best known for his work with the smallpox epidemic. He allowed for Dr. Nathaniel Perkins to inoculate him with the disease and survived the treatment. Due to his survival, Holyoke was able to convince six hundred of his own patients to inoculated with only two of the patients dying.
