Letter from J. H. Miller to D.M. Sloan

Allegany County, Maryland, Centennial Celebration, 1889 Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


United States Express Company

Annandale, N.J. Sept. l8th, 1889

D.M. Sloan, Esq.
Cumberland M.D.

My Dear Sir;

Will you kindly pardon me for not acknowledging sooner the receipt of your invitation, to be present during the Centennial of my old home, Alleghany County, M.D.

I fear on account of business connection, at this season of the year, will not permit my absence, although regretted very much indeed; my absence from Cumberland has now extended over a period of nineteen years, having left Cumberland March 30th,1870 and during the whole of the above time have been employed by the Central Rail Road Company of N. J. but nevertheless, my mind often wanders back to my boyhood days, of the many pleasant and happy moments, spent among the hills of old Cumberland.

Those beautiful lines which are connected with the invitation and especially the latter are very appropriate indeed to myself and others who have been absent so long.

With our many thanks for your kind remembrances to myself and wife and with many wishes for the success of the great event.

I remain yours very truly.

J.H. Miller, agent
C.R.R. of N.J.


J. H. Miller
