This week's Dive into the Archives offering details the events surrounding the sale of a boar pig from The Multnomah County Poor Farm to a Mr. Ed Tapley of Ranier, Oregon. The County Poor Farm, now Edgefield, produced a variety of food for its own residents, patients at the county hospital, inmates of the county jail, and for sale.

Evidently after proposing the sale and shipment  of the boar on November 1st, Tapley sent the November 22nd message you saw Tuesday.
