Shipping Produce down the Rivers 1848

An ad in the Vincennes newspaper July 27, 1848 solicited the patronage of the Merchants and Farmers of the Wabash Valley for the sale of Produce at New Orleans or for re-shipment to any of the eastern ports.  Reference for James M Poole, Commission and Forwarding Merchant in New Orleans was William Baldwin, Esq.  Lawrenceville.

Only one full weekend left to see the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit.  We close on Oct 15 and pack it up and ship it on to Valmeyer, IL.
