Letter to Captain Thomas Melville, Governor of Sailors' Snug Harbor, from C. [Charles] Henry King, Seamen's Retreat Hospital, March 1874

Handwritten letter from C. Henry King, Physician in Chief of the Seamen's Retreat Hospital, to Captain Thomas Melville, asking if there is a man either employed at the Sailors' Snug Harbor, or an inmate there, who could be the steward at Seamen's Retreat Hospital. He also needs two "reliable nurses" and feels that he may be excused for asking this of Melville due to so many of the Hospital's men having left for employment at the Harbor.
