91st PA--Council of administration

Council of administration

"When an invoice of goods was received at a post, the commanding officer ordered his three officers next in line to himself, to convene as a post council or a council of administration, to examine the articles and affix to each a reasonable price. This council, besides regulating his prices and determining what he could carry in stock, sometimes decreed that a small part of his profits be allotted to the post fund for social activities or the like." (James J. Curto, Sutlers and their tokens 1861-1866 (The rebellion tokens of the United States), reprinted from The Numismatist, 1962, page 9).
