  2. Hello,
    I am the archivist at Wilbraham and Monson Academy. The three day children attended our academy when it was know as Wesleyan academy. We are honoring our African American alumni and history with a permanent exhibit. We are a non profit private school. I am looking for any photo’s of the children you may have and I would love a copy of a letter from Thomas to Maryann. We are putting up our exhibit in the end of May and would appreciate your help on this.

    Many thanks,
    Janet Moran
