The Art Shop, W. D. Oldham, Prop. The demise of the A&P. John Armstrong & Son, East End Druggists
“Great excitement in Mason, Bracken, and Lewis counties, caused by the Kanawha salt monopoly of Armstrongs, Grant & Co., - a company of Maysville merchants - Wm. Armstrong, Johnston Armstrong, James Armstrong, Peter Grant (uncle of President U. S. Grant), James Hewitt, and Gilbert Adams, who contract for all of the salt made at the Kanawha works, and advance the price (then 30 cents) to 50 cents per bushel. John Armstrong, another merchant, is included in the indignation felt, because he aided in furnishing capital and otherwise assisted the monopoly. Large public meetings, at Augusta, Maysville, Washington, Mayslick, Germantown and other points, pass denunciatory resolutions, decline too buy or use Kanawha salt, and begin making arrangements for supplies of Conemaugh, Onandoga and Turks' Island salt.”
