- About My Library
- Hartford's small library is listed on a scrap of paper headed "Books belonging to Mary Hartford," which is believed to have been written c. 1825. At the bottom of the list, in a different hand, is written "to be sold," followed by the line "sold at Auction for 75 cents." A final phrase is added in a third hand, but is unclear.
