    Black Hawk, C. T. (Colorado Territory) Mining Letterhead, 1865. One page, 8" x 11" ornate letterhead of "Office of the Kenyon Mining Company" with date line "Black hawk, C. T. January 11, 1865". The letter introduces the bearer, Charles Hill as president of the Broadway Mining Association, who has paperwork for negotiating the sale of their mining property along with instructions for the sale - "Charlie also takes with him a valuable lot of property & you can aid him I hope in negotiating the same." The letter closes on a more ominous note, "We are having Indian troubles again and things look Squally" Letter signed "S. H. Buttrick". Very scarce item from Colorado Territory, with great ending content.

    Very fine, light folds, very small tear at top.
