Letter to George Sheldon regarding trolley

(c) Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association, Deerfield MA. All rights reserved.

Mr. Parsons and Mr. Sheldon have apparently carried on a lengthy debate about the location of the trolley in the town of Deerfield. Mr. Parsons' statement "least said, sooner mended" indicates that they do not agree and that Mr. Parsons is ready to drop the argument. Deerfield residents were divided in their acceptance of the trolley route; in general they realized the electric railway was a good thing, but many, including George Sheldon, objected to the tracks being built down the main street.
