Wishing everyone a Happy 4th!!!!

Hoping everyone enjoys their Independence Day celebrations. Thought you might like to see this letter written by our own William Floyd on July 4th 1821, one month before his death on August 4th of the same year.  By that time he had already been living in his second home in Westernville NY for some 20 years.  I’m hoping to get up there this Summer to see the home and property.
