After we figured out it was Philip H. Trout he did a search on the net and found out what his company was, which was Company A. He then did a search for that company and found a document stating the names of the people in that company and low and behold He found the name of his Great -G-grandfather who was Richard Mauzy. He says that must be where the letter came from and how it got into our family.
As for me I like the story where his great grandmother took the letter from his coat pocket, which could be possible, I know when I was a child and sat on my grandfathers lap I would love to take things out of his shirt pocket, most children do. If this was the case then the letter that is known ( Which I have not seen,) and talks about that company maybe the second letter, for when Lee went to send the first order he found it missing and had to rewrite the order, or Lee may have went to send it and found it missing thinking he miss laid it or just lost it and rewrote the order. If this is true then this letter may be more important then the first.
Mr. Taylor is kind enough to allow me to put those parts of the letter here. If you have any questions he can be reached at the following address.
