I guess my first toot would have to be to let folk know the 'Treaty of Union Articles' (2019) is available in paperback & kindle versions.
#BritNats telling us exactly what the issues are with the union between Scotland & England.
Information that's incredibly still so relevant today.
Railway Incidents, July 1900.
Reminder these articles aren't for the faint-hearted.
It's RSH.com's 2nd Birthday! Thank you to everyone who makes this venture so worthwhile 😊
@Phooney1 is working away on PS trying to get the pencilled inscription & date more legible. Will post a pic of what he comes up with. So far it looks like "E. B. Galusha," (month) maybe "18"/"13," then "1840." I think it also says "from his father." He'd have been 50 in 1840.
Someone had posted his intention to run an article about James MacPherson 2mo. So I grabbed my copy of MacPherson's 'Ossian' to ask if it was the same MacPherson. I noticed the name inscribed. It's signed with E. B. Galusha. There's a faint pencilled year 1840 on the previous page which fits with the only one I could find on Google. He was a NY anti-slavery activist & "1 of 15 Underground Railroad stationmasters." Found book's receipt and it turns out I repatriated it from the US. I wonder... 🤔
