Helen, I happened to have a booklet printed by C.W. Alexander of Phila., PA., about "old time" remedys called "Alexander's Family Friend".I understand he also printed music, and below is the name of another book by him:
"History and Legends of the Old Liberty Bell in Independence Hall in Philadelphia" by Charles Wesley Alexander Published by C.W. Alexander, 1876 (224 So. Third Street, Phila.) I hope this helps as the time frame would be about right. Kathy Abbey, not related.
