It is signed by thirteen town leaders, including William Wetmore (1804 pioneer and Joshua Stow’s land agent), William’s brother Titus Wetmore (Stow’s first postmaster), and Stephen W. Butler, son of Stephen Butler.  The letter has been digitized and is available for viewing on our website. Complete description(PDF).
