Brown was helped by James A Smith of Richmond Virginia. Brown was shipped to Philadelphia in 1848 on a journey that took 26 hours to complete and cost 5 gold pieces. A message said 'Your case of goods is shipped and will arrive tomorrow morning.' A second attempt failed and Smith was arrested and served 8 years.
