NEW  YORK

Willard H Jones memorandum of sale for ??
Looks like somebody bought a stock begining with an I for 17 3/4.  Taxes paid were 20 cents for this $177.50 trade.

 
While I can't report much on the work of Willard H. Jones & Company, the man Willard H. Jones did like to enjoy himself.  From The New York Times of July 26, 1888:

BROKERS ON A YACHTING TOUR.

  Montreal, July 25.--Three American brokers, Walter Power and Willard H. Jones of New York and Stephen H. Bacon of Brooklyn, arrived here tonight in their steam yacht Elia, on which they are spending their vacation.  They left New York on July 3 and went up to the Thousand Islands by the Erie Canal route, and down by the St. Lawrence, running all the rapids.  They intend to spend a day or two here and return to New York by way of Lake Champlain.
