    Pennsylvania during the Revolutionary War: Two Letters. In the first letter, Samuel Hunter (Sunbury, July 30, 1778) informs Captain Samuel Postleweight of movements and locations of the Pennsylvania militia ("there is a hundred of Col. Hartlys Regiment Expected here this day and about Seventy of the Militia which will Enable the Inhabitants to get their grain cut down as they are all Busy about that work at present and has formed in large partys, there has been no mischief done by the Indians"). In the second letter, Robert Patton (Lebanon, November 21, 1779) writes to George Ege of Charming Forge concerning the purchase and delivery of iron ("Barr Iron"). Letters are weak at some folds, with small amount of paper and text loss due to vermin.
