Encloses copies of the three descriptions of engines exhibited in the Chicago World Fair and other subsequent American exhibitions; Timothy Hackworth leaving the S&DR; Jack Hackworth wrote asking for money; Hackworth and Downing, Blair and Co; never herd of Tomlinson, knows the name Bainbridge; describes living in Soho Cottage then moving to Prudence Hackworth’s farm, working at Soho Works as a child, describes later work in shipbuilding; describes writing of his and Gertrude’s [his wife] wills; John Wesley Hackworth- These may be two separate letters, however they are difficult to read and therefore this is hard to ascertain.
