This 1850 letter from Samuel Flagg of Worcester to Daniel Chamberlain of Boston carries unfortunate news regarding staff turnover at their company. A Mr. Bellows, “who has had charge of the iron works in our shop” had decided to leave the company without much explanation. Flagg blames a stay in Boston, where he thinks Bellows was influenced by friends before returning to work in Worcester and demanding $2.00 per day. When his demand was not met and he left the company.

Adopted by Charles H.B. Arning
