My Ephemera Album

So in my previous post I talked about my new ephemera collection. Albeit a small collection (a few letters), it was very cheaply acquired (less than $7).

After some initial research, I found notes relating to a Mayflower (as in the ship) family (not mine, but passengers on the boat).

Pretty cool.

But it gets better. I got a letter from one Marcia Davenport that, according to some preliminary research, could be worth about $50. Not a bad investment.

For those interested, I've uploaded the photos to my Picasa album. Enjoy reading (assuming you can decipher the handwriting).
