Published by the Travelers record By Travelers Insurance Companies - 1892 "The New York and Baltimore Land and Improvement Company" is a rank swindle just exposed by the New York Sun. It professed to be incorporated under the laws of Maryland, and to sell ten-year " debenture certificates" giving title to lands " half-way between Baltimore and Washington." No such incorporation is on file, nor any such ownership of lands in the counties specified. History from OldCompany.com (old stock certificate research service)
