Summary
This collection contains a clipping of Harry Dorsey Bertsch's column, "Along the Old Trail", printed in the August 15, 1930 newspaper, The Old Trails Echo (Centerville, Indiana). The article reprinted an April 6, 1838 letter written by Samuel Hannah to his sister-in-law, Mary Bishop Willetts. In the letter, Hannah relates business conditions in Centerville following the Panic of 1837 noting that "Times are very hard. Money is every day becoming scarcer so that it is next to impossible to make collections." A photograph of Mr. Hannah was also printed along with the article
