George P. Reed Letters
When Cornell University recently put archived copies of the Scientific America magazine on the world wide web, from 1846 to 1869, a number of interesting items have turned up regarding early American watch making history, including a couple of letters to the editor from George P. Reed who worked for Edward Howard as early as 1854. These will be of interest to Chapter 174 members and visitors.
