Just got the letter I ordered on my HPD inscribed DS. If I'm reading the letter correctly, it looks like
the customer picked up the guns at the factory rather them than being shipped. This makes sense as
Holyoke, MA is only about 25 miles from Hartford.

Was this at all unusual back then, or could just anyone pick up a Factory order?
Thanks,
rhloew

Interesting. My interpretation was because of the Address noted, that of the Colt Factory at Hartford. I can see Mr. Thornton "delivering" the guns at the factory, That is giving them to the police rep. Why else would the letter show an "Address" as a caption?
