Volume containing autograph manuscript records of shipments made by an unidentified carrier in California. Records list letters, packages, and other articles, with names of senders, destinations, values, and charges. Pressed samples of California mosses were laid in the volume and have been removed to a separate enclosure. A brief note, written in holograph manuscript by Emma F. Hapgood to her brother, Charles H. Hapgood, Dec 25, 1912, is affixed to the cover. Hapgood identifies the mosses as samples gathered and prepared in California by herself and Lydia S. Hapgood. WA MSS S-1988
