Unpublished, 1886. Unbound sheet. One sheet, written on both sides on the letterhead of The Halfpenny Road Cart, Pontiac, MI, plus envelope. Dated February 9, 1886. Very good. Item #31408
Halfpenny requests a copy of Huntington's history of Clay horses, describes a local Clay stallion and some of his get, and asks if Huntington knows of a horse named Heart-of-Oak that came from Vermont some years back and was perhaps a Black Hawk. He refers to a bill, which isn't here. Halfpenny wishes to correspond further with Huntington, whom he says has "done a great deal of good to the young men of this country." Huntington was an active promoter of Clay trotting horses, known for their Arabian blood. Halfpenny later became an early automotive pioneer. 2 items.
