Collection Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of 7 letters and 1 financial account addressed to John L. Hinkle, Esq., of Hanover, Pennsylvania, between 1818 and 1843. Writing from Baltimore, Maryland, his correspondents addressed topics such as the ownership and sale of land bequeathed in a will and Hinkle's purchases of hardware and related items.

Baltimore lawyer Henry [K]apnall wrote John L. Hinkle twice concerning Hinkle's claim on land owned by a man named Michael Fisher, recently deceased (July 10, 1818, and February 29, 1819), and discussed the legal procedures necessary to file a claim on land that had already been sold. The remaining letters also concern Hinkle's financial affairs, and 5 of the remaining 6 letters include financial accounts for goods Hinkle purchased, such as springs, wire, metal bands, and other hardware. One letter concerns Hinkle's involvement in the financial affairs of George Beck (August 16, 1841).
