Portland and Seattle Railway Company stock certificate, issued on August 24th, 1905, to S.B. Linthicum. The railway company was incorporated on Aug. 22, 1905, two days before this stock certificate was issued.

Levey, Third Vice President of the Northern Pacific, was made a Trustee in the place of Mr. Linthicum..." With vignette, and not canceled.
