Ink That Will Go Everywhere - cover.jpg

Albert Day, originally from Bradford MA, was a printer.  He and Nancy Palmer of Pittsfield NH lived some distance apart for periods of time both before and during their marriage.  Bundles of their letters were saved and have been stored in the attics of four generations for over 130 years by more than ten people in at least five different states.  It is time for them to come out and be of some use.

"This living in two places at once is a curious process.  Here today and there tomorrow.  Now struggling with type that won't fit and machines that won't go, and ink that will go everywhere.  Shut up in a dingy hole with no company but the rats, for many long hours after other people are in their beds, slaving in rags and dirt, then emerging moth-like to discard the habiliments of prison life and breathe the free air, to assume more respectable raiment and take passage for another clime where there is nothing to do but eat, drink, and be merry - no lazy."

~ Albert Day
