Dent's letter is in regard to a man, James Snyder, who has been sent to the State Prison and whom Finley has visited. Dent knew Finley years before and admires him and the work he is doing. He tells of Snyder's good traits and says that he is not guilty of any crime. Mr. Dent requests that Finley continue to visit him if possible and to write him of Snyder's condition. It seems that Snyder was a brother of Dent's wife. Abstract Number - 1036
