Note
A letter from three female Harvard College Library catalogers petitioning for an increase in salary. The letter is dated July 29, 1864. Their petition is seconded in an amendment to the letter written by Ezra Abbott, assistant librarian and superintendent of the Cataloguing Dept. The last page of the letter contains explanatory notes written by "Mr. Hill" (possibly Thomas Hill, President of Harvard) on Sept. 12, [1866?].
