Title: Letter: Boston, [Massachusetts] to Delano, 1870 Aug. 29
Date: 1870 Aug. 29 | 1882 Mar. 18
Description: Letter from Amory Dexter, civil engineer and one-time agent of the Yahoola River and Cane Creek Hydraulic Hose Mining Company, to Delano, a fellow stockholder in the Yahoola River and Cane Creek Hydraulic Hose Mining Company, based in Dahlonega, Georgia, dated August 29, 1870. Dexter works to convince Delano that he should unite with a group of stockholders who are trying to eliminate Nathan H. Hand, whom Dexter claims has failed to pay employees of the company. Dexter asserts that Hand has colluded with Frank W. Hall contrary to the company's interest and asks for permission to include Delano's endorsement upon proof of collusion. Dexter concludes by asking Delano to pay for printing costs associated with convincing the other stockholders to oust Hand.
