DATE SPAN: 07/05/1825 - 10/12/1826

DATE SPAN: 10/14/1826 - 03/26/1827

Box: 1 Fold: 5 Feiner: Georgetown College Letterbook, 1827
DATE SPAN: 04/01/1827 - 11/24/1827

DESCRIPTION: Similar to preceding. Indexed in front. This is, in effect, a series of drafts of letters. Feiner, because he did not write English as a first language, or for other reasons, scratched out many lines before arriving at the final version.

Box: 1 Fold: 6 Feiner: Georgetown College Letterbook, 1827-1828
DATE SPAN: 12/14/1827 - 12/12/1828

Box: 1 Fold: 7 Feiner: Georgetown College Letterbook, 1828-1829
DATE SPAN: 10/03/1828 - 11/29/1829

DESCRIPTION: Similar to preceding. The book is not filled and not indexed. The last four pages are in a different hand, someone writing explicitly on Feiner's behalf. In the fall of 1828 the College decided to change the charges for students', "conditions" or "Prospectus." The overall fixed sum was lowered to $150, but clothes were no longer included in the flat rate, but were to be charged according to the quantity drawn.

Box: 1 Fold: 8 Feiner: Miscellaneous letters, ca. 1827
DATE SPAN: 10/05/1826 - 06/12/1828

DESCRIPTION: A few letters, several of which seem to be drafts of the type generally included in the letterbooks, but not included there.
