The George W. Gould Letters Collection
Each one of the letters is published here in its original handwriting and as transcribed. If you click on the thumbnail of the original letter, the full size PDF will open. The handwriting is remarkably readable, although those not accustomed to cursive such as millennials may struggle nonetheless. The transcription is an easier read! All letters were transcribed by myself, and I am responsible for all errors and omissions. I generally followed the original spelling; if it is incorrect I put [sic] in brackets next to the word; I always used brackets [for words left out] and for [??] if I was uncertain, as well as to note if something was [unreadable]. Fortunately, there was little of this. George spelled New Bern as “Newbern” and I simply left that alone. If anyone finds an error or notes a correction from the original PDF, please do not hesitate to contact me & I will update the transcription.
