Letter from Moses Holbrook to John James Joseph Gourgas, 1828 April 19

Description

Letter from Moses Holbrook to John James Joseph Gourgas. Dated April 19, 1828. In this letter, Sovereign Grand Commander Holbrook of the Southern Jurisdiction states that Joseph M’Cosh arrived last evening, and Holbrook wants to reply to Gourgas’ official Balustre soon. Holbrook touches upon the anti-Masonic troubles occuring in Western New York and disparages their critics.
