Image description: This short, undated biography describes the life of Samuel Mayer, son of Johannes Mayer of Mitteltaun (or Middletown), Pennsylvania. Samuel was a pious man who worked as a blacksmith and died young on February 12, 1790. This text appears to be a draft or to have been under revision, as there are many corrections made by the same hand that wrote the Vitae itself.
