Proposal to Provide Fresh Beef to the County House & Asylum from J. & J. Costello, Proprietor
This is another fresh beef proposal for the County House & Asylum from J. & J. Costello, another Detroit meat dealer, for the time period of July 1, 1891 to June 30, 1892. It came in 9 cents less than the Marcellus Gleason proposal though I'm not certain that it was a competition or that the lowest price got the contract.
As with the previous posting, W. K. Muir, Superintendent of the Poor, is emblazoned on the accompanying envelope.
