He mentions an inmate, Freud (?)  August Cornelius Lewenhagen Peterson, a former inmate of the Sailors' Snug Harbor, but who was discharged from SSH after having a "quarrel" with a steward and leaving the institution without permission. The consul explains that in the years since, he has been a hard worker who has recently lost his wife and has no means of support. The consul seeks to have him readmitted to the Sailors' Snug Harbor.
