It is about 20 pages, I could duplicate it and mail it. The quality is not great, some pages have some of the text unduped. I have the Sotweed book and a couple of xeroxed pages from Londontowne: A Brief History by Donald Shomette. Londontowne was attempt by the rural population of Anne Arundel county to get a port away from Annapolis. Thomas was the first person to buy a lot. Londontowne was/is about halfway from Route 2 to the beach on State 214.
In another path I asked Caroline L. Britt Mullins, author ofThe History of Mayo, Maryland for any description of Linthicums in her book since Mayo was where Thomas established himself. She sent the following, and has asked to get past a security system I have to send more.
