This brief letter of April 4, 1900 from C.W. Hazelton, a member of the Massachusetts Senate to George Sheldon of Deerfield announces the intention of the Street Railway Committee to visit the village of Deerfield. They will make the round trip from Boston by train and by carriage, arriving first in Springfield, moving north to Greenfield by 10:22 A.M., to Deerfield, back to Greenfield for dinner and "home" in the afternoon by the Fitchburg Railroad. The purpose is apparently to assess the situation for the route of the proposed trolley line.
