Letter from C. C. Bradbury to John Turner
Letter from C. C. Bradbury of Boston to Capt. John Turner, Isle au Haut, regarding a proposed visit by Bradbury and party to Isle au Haut. Chiefly discusses rates Capt. Turner would charge for boarding the party, and attempts to bargain for $5 per person per week. Bradbury mentions that he would expect to stay no less than three weeks. Also explains food expectations. This type of boarding was common during the early period of summer tourism on the Maine coast. Some coastal and island residents would vacate their homes for the summer in order to accommodate tourists, while others rented out spare rooms.
