Mr. Pratt

1857                Address Unknown, Foxboro, Massachusetts.

Mr. Pratt was recorded in one announcement on July 6, 1857 in the Portland Weekly Advertiser (Portland, Maine).  The “fraternal spirit” of the Massachusetts democracy is manifesting itself in a dangerous manner.  It appears that a young man named Pratt, who has a Daguerreotype Saloon in Foxboro, has lately been appointed postmaster at North Easton.  At midnight on the 22d inst. His saloon was fired by incendiaries—supposed to have gone from the latter named place for the purpose—by way of manifesting their envy of his appointment.  The damage done to his property exceeded $1,000.  Truly these democrats are “fraternally inclined.”

Mr. Pratt is not recorded in other photographic directories.
