Dear Mr. Klein:
I am enclosing the carbon copy of the paper the "Shriver Family [of Little Conewago]" which I read at the April meeting of the Adams Historical. Society. This, pioneer family is a very interesting one to met me: 1st. that Andrew Shriver was very likely the first permanent settler of what is now Adams County and 2nd. that I am a member of the family through the daughter Veronica who married Heinrich Kuntz. I believe you, are a member through her brother David who married Rebecca Feree. I do not think that the report contains very many facts that you do not already know, I used quite extensively the "Memoirs" of Judge Abraham Shriver. It is s great pity that he did not set down more facts of Andrew Shriver's other children than he did. Anyway I am glad to send you the copy. I am also enclosing a clipping from. the “Gettysburg Times”.
I am taking a 2 months trip to Europe this July and at the end of the tour which will be Paris I plan to go to Alsenborn/Pfalz and spend two weeks with some friends I have there. I have been told that the Pfalz is the most beautiful part of Germany. I am very anxious to see Alsenborn in that it was the home of our Shriver family before they came to America.
With kindest regards to your, I remain,
Yours very truly,
Kenneth K. Kroh
