Letter to Captain Thomas Melville, Governor of Sailors' Snug Harbor, from A. Emilius Outerbridge, of The Office of The Quebec and Gulf Ports S.S. [Steamship] Co., February 4, 1876

Handwritten letter from A. Emilius Outerbridge of the Quebec and Gulf Ports S.S. [Steamship] Company, to Captain Thomas Melville, regarding a man named "Wilson", possibly an inmate of the Sailors' Snug Harbor, who borrowed money from Outerbridge to buy materials to construct a model boat that Wilson would then bring to Outerbridge to sell. Outerbridge is concerned that this individual may have defrauded him, as he has not heard further from Wilson, and requests information about whether Wilson is or was an inmate of Sailors' Snug Harbor.
