dc.description.abstractThese letters from Laban consist of essentially a diary during his mastering of a vessel, sent to his parents. They are sent in pre-addressed pre-printed envelopes, to “Laban Howes, Dennis, Mass.” to which is added in handwriting “United States of America.” This letter’s envelope is also stamped “John Dawson & Co.”, postmarked “Queenstown MR 18 81”. This one is written on very poor paper, and the bleed-through of ink from back to front (and front to back) of each sheet makes some of the handwriting almost illegible. Sometimes he has numbered the pages, and sometimes not; we will adhere to page numbering.en_US

dc.relation.ispartofThe “Indian Fields Archives” consist of a large group of letters and documents found in the homestead of Zenas Howes, now 956 Main Street, Dennis. This house, built in 1808, is now owned by descendants David & Jane (Pine) Wood. David is the great-grandson of Ella Mae Howes, daughter of Carleton Howes. The letters were captured by David’s son using a high-resolution scanner and placed on a CD.en_US

dc.provenanceThe various letters and documents were all printed from the CD, and the transcription was performed from the printed copies. In most cases all of the documents appear to have been faithfully scanned, with no loss of information. In a very few cases, the scanned bed is at the limit of the document, and slightly beyond, and a letter or word or two may have been missed. In any event, any items which are illegible are so noted with blanks, e.g. [----], or of questionable context by [?].en_US
