A few days ago, as I do every year, I watched the annual showing of the movie "Scrooge". I always recall the scene of the poor miners who "work in the bowls of the earth".

Yesterday while doing my DL&W research on the New York Times site, I came across a very timely article about the young boys employed in the DL&W coal mines. The article is from 1885 and discusses in great detail the conditions under which they worked. I thought I'd share it with you.

Happy Holidays,
Ron Dukarm
