Some thoughts. The Q could be an O, the M could be a RN or a NI and the rest, well, this one has me stumped. Shelley L.

Hi Cindy, I may have to hold onto the file until next week, and if so, I'll let you know. You are right about his name, it is the shop owner's name. I thought of proprietor, but that doesn't sound right for the time period. The name of the boook is Eliza and it is Oct. of 1836.... The shop seems to contain all kinds of candles and candle stands and holders, plus the supplies needed to make them. He talks about when Christmas gets near he will have bayberry candles.. You spoke of forgetting and putting in an extra letter on Shelley's message, Well, I can't remember the author's name, last name is colver, but she is unfamiliar too me so would have to look again for her name. Thanks for your ideas. Sue S.
