Fox: James Coleman Fox letter of reference written by William Struthers, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1839.

James C. Fox was the son of Samuel Fox and Elizabeth Wehling. The letter of reference was written by William Struthers, a marble mason in Philadelphia. William Struthers' company, William Struthers & Company, was a marble and contracting business in Philadelphia, whose commissions included the United States Mint, George Washington's sarcophagus and most of Philadelphia's most important monuments, including The Merchant's Exchange, the Philadelphia Exchange, The Pennsylvania & Reading Railroad Building, and the Mechanic's Bank. Note how the letter says, "No brickmakers in the City have had a better reputation than S. Fox & Sons." That's quite a good endorsement from someone as prominent in the United States as William Struthers.
