Deborah Higgins, Letter, copy 2, 1840

To the Public - It was with no little surprise I saw in the
Ledger of the February 26th 1840 an advertisement Signed J. Mc
Glathery, charging my son, William R. Haffelfinger with
having run away from him, The truth is, my Son
was never bound to Mr. Mc Glathery —consequently he
cannot be termed an apprentice, He was with —
Mr. Mc Glathery about fourteen months on trial only --
and had he been treated as he was justly entitled
while with him, I should have bound him; but
as my son was unwilling to remain any longer
with Mr. Mc Glathery, I called upon Mr Mc Glathery
and after a full and mutual understanding, it was —
agreed that my Son should go home with me to
Bordentown Mr. Mc Glathery’s wife aided to get —
ready and pack up my son’s clothe, on Friday
21st, and on the day following he visited —
them and recived a triffling present, after —
which we parted as I thought —
friends, fully and fairly satisfied with —
each other. How true indeed, is the saying
that “the heart of man is deceitful above all
things, and desperately wicked”
very respectfully
Deborah Higgins
