    Halifax, NS- Western Express & Ticket Agency - Clarence R. Barry Ad Note circa 1890
    One of these ad notes resides in the Bank of Canada Museum. Clarence R. Barry was arrested in New York City on August 31, 1893 on a charge of larceny filed with the Chief of Police of Halifax. Barry had embezzled $1639 from the Canadian Pacific Railroad. He left his office suddenly on Aug. 22 and an examination of his books showed a deficiency of that amount. He died in December 1900 at the age of 57 in Halifax. A couple of small tears are noticed on this ad note printed by the St. John and Halifax Steam Lithographic Co. Crisp Uncirculated.
