The House of Harper

Excerpt from The House of Harper: A Century of Publishing in Franklin Square After the close of the Revolutionary War, James Harper removed to the city of New York, and for many years con ducted a general grocery business in Maiden Lane, near the market and ferry, which grew into what was then considered an extensive concern, supplying his neighbors at retail and the smaller stores of the surrounding country in larger quantities. On retiring from mercantile life he settled in Brooklyn, then a rural village, where he died in 1819 in the seventy-eighth year of his age. His remains were interred under the pulpit of the Sands Street Church, of which he was a member. The following primitive inscription is on his tombstone.
