Letter to Captain Gustavus D. S. Trask, Governor of Sailors' Snug Harbor, from James Tibby, Inmate, Sailors’ Snug Harbor, November 23, 1885
Handwritten letter from James Tibby, inmate of Sailors' Snug Harbor, to Captain Gustavus D. S. Trask, discussing a purchase of saltpeter that he made from the Bergenport Chemical Works, which was purchased from him by another man. This second man purchases other saltpeter from an intermediary who in turn purchases from "the institution" [Sailors' Snug Harbor?]. Tibby's purchaser is interested in cutting out the intermediary and buying directly from the Harbor and Tibby asks if Trask will contact the man, should this interest him.
