1814 Stampless Letter, York Pa John Stroman Jr., Early Watermark, John Hay For Sale

1814 Stampless Letter, York Pa   John Stroman Jr., Early Watermark, John Hay

Traveling the Paper Trails of American History

"Mr. Hersh has removed to the State of Maryland Frederick County. I have given him notice of the demand but received no answer."

(See below for scans)

1 1/2 page stampless letter written by John Stroman Jr. on March 14, 1814, at York, PA, to State Auditor General George Bryan at Harrisburg, PA. Letter measures approx. 6 3/4" x 8".

Interesting and early letter concerning an attempt by the Pennsylvania State Auditor General to collect on the accounts of two York County, PA, public servants.

George Bryan has requested York attorney John Stroman Jr. to bring suit "against the estate of John Hay Esquire dec'd late Treasurer and Benjamin Hersh Esqr late Sheriff." Hay's son and executor Jacob Hay claimed that there was a "mistake in the accounts" and has told Stroman that he can settle the difference. Therefore, Stroman writes Bryan that he has "delayed the suit on that account." He informs Bryan that Hersh has moved to Frederick County, MD, and that he has given Hersh "notice of the demand but received no answer." He notes that he will bring suit against Hersh when Hersh returns for a visit in April.

John Stroman Jr. (?-1817) was born in Baltimore, the son of John Stroman and Mary Sitler. He married Mary Leightner (1787-?) in 1809. George Bryan Jr. (?-1838) served as State Auditor General 1809-1821.

John Hay (1733-1810) was a pioneer settler of York County, played a major role in organizing activities in support of American independence, and served as a Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War. He was Treasurer of York County 1778-1801. Benjamin Hersh was the original proprietor of the famous Golden Swan Tavern at York and served as Sheriff of York County.

NOTE: letter features the watermark "JK." This the watermark of Jacob Keller, who operated a paper mill near Reading, Berks County, PA, from 1811-1817. See American Watermarks 1690-1835 (2002).
