July 25, 1868. Wells Fargo agent Charles Catlin at Ft. Bridger Wyoming received $34 in gold coin from William A. Carter for a billiard table delivered to that frontier outpost by Wells Fargo & Co's Express. Carter ran a successful supply business at Ft. Bridger, and was famous for his hospitality. His guests enjoyed the billiard table, probably unique in frontier Wyoming.
