Dear Sun Spots: Your readers have helped me on previous research projects. Now I’m researching and writing a book on Lewiston’s history before the Civil War. I have visited various libraries and historical societies and used their resources. Now if anyone has items such as diaries, letters, or documents before 1863 or newspapers before 1855, it would be a tremendous help if I could see them under circumstances to ensure their safety. I may be reached at 782-3072.

Many thanks to Sun Spots readers for your help. – Doug Hodgkin, Lewiston.
