Moderate tanning, some offsetting from plates. Good plus. A scarce pamphlet documenting the cattle business of William D. Walcott and Samuel Campbell in upstate New York. Walcott and Campbell were initially partners in the cotton business, owning one of the factories that gave New York Mills its name, but the acquisition of more land in and around the town led them to import and breed significant numbers Shorthorn cattle, becoming prominent members of that industry as well.
