Description:
Raleigh, North Carolina, July 8, 1840. 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. An autograph letter signed (ALS) from Joseph B. Hinton (1788-1872) to H.M. Morfit, asking for prices and descriptions of lots of property offered for sale in Washington, D.C. "Please inform me what are the most accommodating terms upon which said property can be sold to an actual resident intending to improve it for permanent residence," wrote Hinton, the state legislator of Beaufort County and Raleigh. It appears Morfit's notes concerning his negotiations are written on what was a blank page of the bifolium, indicating his willingness to sell certain lots at 1/3 cent per square foot over the assessed value; therefore square 527 was offered at $1,107 and square 624 at $1,964. This one-page letter has a few bits of loss along the left edge, as if removed from a gathering, not impacting the contents.

More than 6,500 jobs were created for the construction of the system of tunnels, canals, and conduits built to move one billion gallons of water per day.
