Title: Letter: Columbus, Georgia to Colonel Wier Boyd, [Dahlonega, Georgia], 1868 Jan. 9
Date: 1868 Jan. 9
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 January 9, 1868. Dexter agrees with Nathan H. Hand's notice of a balance of $3.59 against him in the Yahoola books. He adds that Judge Rice judges the transaction legal and does not question his method of payment. Dexter asserts that he would like to sell the mill and wants Boyd to talk to Peck about doing so. He adds that Peck thinks the mill will sell. Dexter asks Boyd to represent him in the sale of the mill and to take care of the transfer and receipt of funds. He then lists a mule, wagons, and office furniture he would like turned over to him and suggests prices for a few of the items. Dexter suggests that Hand may be interested in the office furniture. He urges Boyd to get possession of the mule in order to ensure that the mule is well-cared for. Dexter closes with well-wishes to mutual friends who have just married.
