Abstract Letter from Edwin B. Worthen to Francis S. Dane, May 19, 1952

In a letter to Francis S. Dane, curator of the Lexington Historical Society, Edwin B. Worthen discusses the loan of two items to the Historical Society. Joseph H. Fiske, John T. Fiske, and Mrs. Hattie E. Coffin entrusted Worthen with an account book (1801-1824) belonging to Dr. Joseph Fiske, as well as a certificate signed by President George Washington inducting Fiske into the Society of the Cincinnati. Worthen suggests how Dane might care for the items.
