The Scarlet Letter

Hester Prynne may have had to wear a scarlet "A" in Massachusetts in the 1600's but in Delaware the wearing of a scarlet letter was in use thru the first half of the 1800's.  Altho in my limited research  I have found no reference to a scarlet "A" in that time period the letters "T" for thief and "F' for forger were used extensively. 

from 1829  and below in 1839

  and in 1849
