In 1828 Charles S. Davies of Portland, wrote Samuel Cook, land agent at Houlton, concerning State and Federal support for Aroostook settlers in the Border Dispute with New Brunswick, as well as other matters.
In the letter he refers to (John) Baker who, in 1827, raised a flag depicting an eagle partially surrounded by stars, in a community that was latter know as Fort Kent.
New Brunswick authorities arrested Baker because they considered the act to be seditious.
Davies also writes about some personal business matters.
