Language of Materials
All are in good condition. Several had been encapsulated, upon removal the reunion program was found to have adhesive on the edge and was placed in a separate file folder enclosure.
Only one item in this folder was found in the card catalog, the "Litchfield Awake" broadside. None have accession numbers. They were formerly arranged with "Miscellaneous Manuscripts" and later moved to Litchfield Ephemera prior to being removed, added to the collection, and described.
