Those I have met, or, Boys in blue: in which is remembered those I have met along the road of life; giving an account when born, married, place of residence, occupation, etc., also, a number of communications will appear over the names of well-known persons throughout the country.

    The following letter explains itself. Miss Harden is known to many persons in this county. DEAR BROTHER--
    I have just heard of your intention of writing another book, by receiving your circular. I was not surprised at this, but was greatly surprised at the request to write an article for its pages. I almost shrink at the task, when there will be so many able and interesting communications therein. It has been our fortune not to be much together since we left the paternal roof-- almost strangers, in most respects. The last time I was at your house in Anderson you were not at home, but engaged in writing up the "Early Times in Boone Co.," where we spent many happy days at home, and where father and mother lived so long, and where they are sleeping in the quiet little cemetery at Zionsville.

    Since I saw you I have traveled considerably in the West-- Colorado and California. While in the latter State I thought of you, as well as brother William, George and Addison, all having been here in days past. I almost wished I could call back thirty-five years, when you were here in the "miner's cabin." I like the State as well as Colorado, very well, especially the beautiful scenery and healthy climate, but like the rest have wandered back East again.

    Before I forget it I want to thank you for a copy of "Early Times in Boone." I have read it through and through. I hope you will do well in your present undertaking. Shall look forward with great solicitude to its appearance. Send me a copy whether you print this scribbling letter or not, for I know it will sparkle with gems from others that will amply repay a perusal. You will no doubt write of many I have met in your county, as well as Boone and Hamilton.
    MARY HARDEN. MT. GILEAD, OHIO, March 15, 1888.

    • I believe this is the correct Mary Harden-she is enumerated next door to her sister, Marilla. However she was never married, not widowed and her death certificate says she was born in Jan 1839, the informant was her niece, Ethel Hardin Clark.
