Title: Letter: Columbus, Georgia to Colonel Wier Boyd, [Dahlonega, Georgia], 1868 Feb. 27
Date: 1868 Feb. 27
Description: Letter from Amory Dexter, civil engineer and one-time agent of the Yahoola River and Cane Creek Hydraulic Hose Mining Company, to Colonel Wier Boyd, dated February 27, 1868. Dexter affirms that he is glad Boyd has closed with Mr. Oates and rented to him for the season. He assumes that Mr. Peck has paid for equal interest in a joint deed with Oates. Dexter advises Boyd to immediately collect payment for his office furniture if he has sold it to Nathan H. Hand or Peck. He requests that Boyd retain the funds until he comes to Dahlonega in May, but invites Boyd to use the funds in the meantime. Dexter closes with the request that Boyd return the Murray County land to the tax assessor for taxes and have the deed recorded.
