Title: Letter: Socorro, New Mexico to Wier Boyd, [Dahlonega, Georgia], 1881 Apr. 20
Date: 1881 Apr. 20
Description: Letter from W. S. Hungerford to Wier G. Boyd, dated April 20, 1881. Hungerford notifies Boyd of his new address in Socorro, New Mexico and asks whether Boyd has closed the sale of their property. He requests details and asks whether any new mines are successful. Hungerford facetiously inquires whether Williams has gotten into any new schemes and shares gossip that Williams and his brother-in-law are building a large ditch. He asks whether Wahl, an associate of Davis in Auraria, has done anything about getting water to the Whim Hill property. Hungerford concludes by asking to be remembered to his friends in Georgia.
