April – Before Apr. 29, Sam hired his niece’s husband, Charles Luther Webster to take over dealings in the Kaolatype and brass ventures. Webster was 29, a civil engineer and real estate man in Fredonia. Sam realized he couldn’t see to the business details of his investments and give his writing the focus needed. (See Apr. 29 entry.) Webster worked at 104 Fulton Street in New York [MTBus 157]. Within a week of hire, Webster detected evidence of fraud by Slote and Sneider [Powers, MT A Life 452].
