The Hudson River Railroad was chartered in 1846 to extend a rail line of the Troy and Greenbush Railroad from East Albany to New York City. The president of the Hudson River Railroad in the 1850's and 60's was Samuel Sloan, prior to its acquisition by Cornelius Vanderbilt and its merger with the New York Central system in 1869. When the railroad was built as far as Garrison, New York in 1848, Sloan built a house there, where he passed away at the age of 90, having been involved with railroads for more than half a century. Printed on yellow paper, attractively headed by an engraving of a train leaving the depot. 7 x 11", a little rubbed and toned above top fold, few very short slits at folds, otherwise very good.
