Woo-hoo! I just received a copy of a letter written to my 4th-great grandfather, Daniel Robinson, in 1818. It was a letter recruiting him to work at the Ulster Glass Company in Woodstock, NY as glass blower. Sweet! It gets me definitively two years further back... hopefully closer to figuring out his connection to Scotland.

Here is my rough transcription of the letter. Words I had trouble deciphering are in parenthesis.
