Dunning & Donaghe (New Haven, Conn.)
14 ALS from Dunning & Donaghe, a lumberyard company in New Haven, Connecticut to Thomas W. Smith & Co., proprietors of a lumber mill in Augusta, Maine. The letters, primarily lumber orders, reflect Dunning & Donaghe's concern with lumber quality and interest in the possibilities for hemlock boards. Bills of timber are given for the building of the new statehouse in New Haven (designed by Ithiel Town and opened in 1830), wharf logs needed by the (Farmington?) Canal Committee, as well as for an unidentified small church and three small dwellings.
