Abstract

Letter from James Harrison to his wife, Ann Harrison, regarding business and social matters. James Harrison updates his wife on the status of their fellow Friends, including one Friend who hopes that he will not lose his land while in prison. 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.
