Four telegrams related to manger H.C. Shedd's attempts to get the Boston Braves (1920) and Boston Red Sox (1919) to play baseball games against his Rutland, Vermont team:
  • received from Henry Sullivan of North Billerica, Mass (Sept 19, 1919)
  • sent to Secretary of the Boston Red Sox by H.C. Shedd (handwritten, 1919)
  • received from E G Barrows (Boston Red Sox) (Sept 16, 1919)
  • sent to Secretary of the Boston Braves by H.C. Shedd (handwritten, Oct 1,1920)
Three of these involved Shedd's attempt to bring the Boston Red Sox and Babe Ruth to Rutland, Vermont. The Red Sox were eventually booked for October 5, 1919. Also included with these four original telegrams is a 14-page booklet describing the event, published by the Rutland Historical Society in 2000.
