Car Coupling.

Description: Patent for a new and improved coupling for railroad cars.

It consists, mainly, in the peculiar construction of a coupling device, in combination with a spring for holding it to the open or closed position, and co-operating with the same for automatic action" (lines 11-22).

[Letter from H. S. Moore to Charles, August 8, 1881]

Description: He received Charles' letter and Clarence got a job moving Mr. Crowell to Delta County. They were going to go through Melissa and Ladonia, but couldn't. They went through White Rock, Devil's Race Track, Hogeye, and Commerce. After moving Mr. Crowell they visited Paris, Texas. Nelson Dalken and J.W. Broad are dead. He talks of how nice Paris square is. Then he went to Bonham and his acquaintance Maddsey is becoming rich from being a butcher. He mentions Dodd City and they were going to start for home, but Una wasn't feeling well. They returned home and he mentions that his cotton is damaged by the drought. The corn has also been effected by the drought. Sam Doss was killed by the sheriff of Bonham. He talks about camp meetings taking place on their route, the little rain they received. Sylvanns and Solomon killed some skunks and Aunt Ann has gotten better, George is not back from the Nation, and Harriets' folks are not well.
