We are honored to have loaned from our collections an original letter from Harriet Myers to John Jay II to an exhibit mounted by the Underground Railroad Education Center at the Stephen and Harriet Myers Residence in Albany New York. Harriet’s handwritten one-page letter is a treasure trove of information about UGRR activism, the role of Black female abolitionists, and the political climate of the 1860s in the Capital Region of New York.
