From [Anthony] Todd
AL: Historical Society of Pennsylvania
<General Post Office, Thursday, April 4, 1771. An invitation, in the third person, to dinner at four the next day with Mr. Wharton and Major Trent.4 A bizarre postscript, in Todd’s hand, reads “Salt Fish and Brandy.”>
4. Samuel Wharton and William Trent, two of the prime movers in the Walpole Company. The dinner was presumably to discuss its affairs.
