During the razing of the old Sheriff's residence on Main Street, some interesting old documents were found. One of the first receipts found was for a year's subscription to The Aegis in 1869. The then publisher, F.W. Baker, was receiving $3 a year for a small, four-page paper. Another receipt was for a $6.28 premium paid to the Harford Mutual Insurance Company in 1861. A large number of items were billed to R.R. Carmen, the former sheriff of Harford County. His purchases in the 1865-66 period included a trader's license, 47 pounds of cheese for $11.28, 50 pounds of rice for $6, a receipt for $15.40 for two calves weighing 220 pounds, 50 bars of soap for $6.50 and other payments made for livery bills. One clipping found told of John O'Neill exhorting his men to continue resistance during the famed attack on Havre de Grace and an article reporting that Edwin Booth packed the Chestnut Hill Opera House in Philadelphia while presenting a play.
