Cooke and Day Family Papers

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: AppMs-0766

Scope and Contents

The collection consists of scans and copies of two letters to Mrs. Paul (Lettie) Williams in Shulls Mill, North Carolina from Mrs. J.D. Loizeaux (possibly Catherine Lorraine) of Plainfield, New Jersey. The letters are primarily concerned with the purchase of handcrafted articles; Mrs. Loizeaux seems to be a patron of sorts.

There is also a scan and a copy of an original song "The North Carolina Hills" written by Jennie Townsend Cooke.
