I feel confident in my ability to give entire satisfaction in all business entrusted to my care, and refer to the following well-known firms of this city and of Texas, where I resided for twenty years." There follows a list of twenty-two businesses from New Orleans, Galveston, and Houston. An ephemeral piece from the Reconstruction period in Louisiana.
