November 19 Saturday – Sam wrote from Hartford to Charles Webster, enclosing $500.

“I leave for Canada Nov. 25, & shall be back about Dec. 7. If you should need more money meantime, write your aunt Livy. She will send it.”

Sam needed to go to Canada, so as to claim residency when P&P was released. This would secure copyright there [MTBus 176].

Henry Hooker & Co. wrote from New Haven after receiving Sam’s “valued favor of 11th inst….when you are ready to give details for new carriage we will make estimate on same…” [MTP]. Note: Sam’s not extant.
