Letter, Kate Gleason to James Gleason

October 25, 1888

A letter from Kate Gleason to her brother, James Gleason. Kate tells Jim about a business trip she took to Ohio and her successful sale to a customer she was initially wary of meeting because her impression of him as “an old Dutchman” led her to believe he would not be friendly to a female salesperson. While traveling, she attended the Cincinnati Centennial Exposition.
