These are some old documents from the A. B. Farquhar Co. and the Hench and Dromgold Company, both of which were located in York, Pennsylvania. According to the letter, the traction engine purchased from Farquhar carried a price of $1,515.00, not including a $40.00 cab. The supplier was 'trusting everything will turn out all right,' and of course, one wonders how everything did turn out. These billheads are certainly works of art in comparison to the invoices one receives today!
