Short-lived company that built and ran a sugar refinery in New York. It acquired a plot in 1852 to build a refinery. In 1857 the company failed. Surprisingly the proceeds from the sale in 1858 were more than enough to pay for the mortgage.
Early design for this bond - more typical of later share certificates. Unusually three individuals are identified as creditors. Large vignette of the refinery. Corporate seal. Very thin paper and oversize format.
