Title: Letter: Hadlyme, Connecticut to Wier Boyd, Dahlonega, Georgia, 1879 Nov. 28
Date: 1879 Nov. 28
Description: Letter from W. S. Hungerford to Wier Boyd, dated November 28, 1879. Hungerford offers a discount of $100 if Boyd is able to get Trimble to settle his debt with cash immediately. He reiterates that his primary objective is to be released from his own debts. Hungerford gives instructions for the distribution of funds, assuming Boyd is able to collect the money from Trimble. He inquires about the mining prospects in Dahlonega and notes that business is reviving all over the country. Hungerford expects more capital to be attracted to mining, but allows that the dry weather may interfere with mining operations.
