Eloise Ephemera


I've come across a treasure trove of old Eloise contracts, correspondence and negotiations of such and plan to buy it up as I can afford. I considered contacting the Eloise Historical Commission but they'll just lock the stuff up and allow for its viewing at their will and convenience. I'd rather people actually be able to see the documents at their leisure instead of through some stuffy group of old hens.

I'll be posting these at some point in the next few days as time allows. These are mainly contract talks for beef sales to the House and Asylum from the 1880s and 1890s. Quite a brilliant find if I must say so myself.

Can I ask where you found these?

You can ask but I won't divulge the answer.
