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 claims that Snyder is an innocent man and gives details of the alleged crime. He tells Finley about Snyder's good traits and says that he is not guilty of any crime. Mr. Dent requests that Finley continue to visit Snyder if possible and write to him about his condition. It seems that Snyder was a brother of Dent's wife. Abstract Number - 1036
