Letter concerning Nancy Pierce teaching position, 1860
D. B. Prince of York, Pennsylvania, wrote to Josiah Pierce of Gorham asking that Pierce's daughter, Nancy, be allowed to continue her teaching position in York.
Nancy Pierce (1834-1893) did continue the job, leaving when Confederate troops marched into the city in June 1863.
