  SETH THOMAS. Manuscript DS: "Seth Thomas" and 91 others, 2p, 7¾x12½, front and verso. Plymouth, Connecticut, 1823 September 27. In part: "Whereas an application has been made and is now pending before the County Court for the County of Litchfield praying for the discontinuance of a highway in Plymouth laid out & established September County Court 1812…We the subscribers are of opinion that said highway is wholly unnecessary for public use and wish the same to be discontinued." Seth Thomas has clearly signed on the second page, the fifth signature in the first column. Thomas was associated with Eli Terry and Silas Hoadley in the firm of Terry, Thomas & Hoadley, which manufactured clocks by mass production methods (1807). He founded his first clock factory at Plymouth Hollow, Connecticut in 1812. The Seth Thomas Clock Co. was formed in 1853. After his death in 1859, Plymouth Hollow, a mile east of Plymouth, was renamed Thomaston in his honor. Fragile. Folds show separations, affecting some signatures but not Thomas'. 2" tear at lower left crease. Light tape repairs at mid-horizontal fold at edges. Lightly stained. Lightly soiled, just touching the "S" and "t" of Seth.
