Abstract

Letter dated July 16, 1670 (July 6, 1670 Old Style) from James Harrison to Roger Longworth regarding business and social matters. James Harrison and Roger Longworth were shoemakers by trade, and both moved within extensive Quaker social networks. Due to their unwillingness to swear oaths, Quakers often could not conduct business with non-Friends. As a result, Quaker business and social networks were often very connected. He finishes the letter by sending his regards and love to Longworth and his fellow prisoners.
