Secret Life

In “The Secret Life of a Developing Country (Ours)” (September/October), Jack Larkin quotes a Francis Underwood of Enfield, Massachusetts. I would like to point out that in the early nineteenth century Enfield was located in Connecticut and not in Massachusetts. Enfield, in common with the towns of Suffield and Woodstock, seceded from the Royal Government of Massachusetts Bay and joined the Charter Government of Connecticut in 1749.

We hope you enjoy our work.
