Title: Letter: Saint Louis, Missouri to Wier Boyd, Dahlonega, Georgia, 1892 Apr. 28
Date: 1892 Apr. 28
Description: Letter from F. E. Dickie, secretary of the Phoenix Gold Mining Company, to Wier Boyd, dated April 28, 1892. Dickie promises to pay Boyd for costs associated with preparing the Exter v. Etowah Gold Mining Company case for argument before the Supreme Court. Dickie asks to compare Boyd's bill of exceptions with that of his own lawyer in preparation for the case. He argues that because F. C. Exter accepted stock in lieu of monetary compensation, he does not have a valid claim against Etowah Gold Mining Company for monetary compensation. On those grounds, Dickie believes they can get the case dismissed.
