This lot includes three undated black and white photos, measuring 4" x 6" to 3.5" x 5.75", three letters and an envelope, concerning the proposed sale of a mine in British Columbia. The photos include a prospector named "Esclemsia Rodriguez", standing near a river holding a gold-mining pan. The other two photos contain images of "Old Baldy""Mt. San Antonio"near the edge of Los Angeles County. The three letters, all dating back to 1923, concern a proposition for selling the "Sunlight Mining and Milling Co." and the "Ainsworth Mining and Milling Co." The letters range in size from 9.25" x 6" to 10" x 8", and are written by Mr. David N. Hatch and Mr. Ben F. Field. Hatch's offer to Field reads, in part: "I will make you and Judge Cherry the following proposition in regard to the "Sunlight" mine, situated in the Hot Springs Mining District - about one mile from Ainsworth " ... The mine is no. 715 of group no. one (1), for which a Crown Grant was issued Feb. 13, 1895... It is one of the richest mines in British Columbia...

Very interesting, first-hand information on the sale of a mining operation! (7 items)
