Letter to Captain Gustavus D. S. Trask, Governor of Sailors' Snug Harbor, from Richard Dayas, Inmate, Sailors’ Snug Harbor, November 21, 1887

Handwritten letter from Richard Dayas, inmate of Sailors' Snug Harbor, to Captain Gustavus D. S. Trask, asking to be moved from the southwest house to the house where Captain [George?] Mason is in charge. He explains that he has applied to Mr. [Joseph K.?] Clark, who has said that he may move but will not let him move into the room that Mason says is available in his house. Dayas wishes to move because of his roommate's snoring and other noises "which to adequately describe is impossible."
