We now have a new book available at our gift shop, the "Walter P. Snow, A Common Place Book," a collection of poems and essays from the journal of Walter P. Snow of Snow Hill, covering the period 1834-1848. He was born in Maryland in 1818, spent his early years as a ship captain, and became an attorney in Snow Hill. The book is edited and published by Laura Kaufman Lawrence of Williamsburg, Virginia.
