    Montana Stage Company Boulder, Montana Territory Deeds for Virginia City Stage Property, 1888. Handwritten on Montana Stage Co. letterhead two page, 8.5" x 11'. Very interesting letter to "Mr. Buford Virginia City, Montana. Dear Sir, Enclosed please find deeds of the Virginia City Stage property. M. Salisbury has instructed me to explain to you that a deed from Wells Fargo & Co. to him is unnecessary, as his purchase of the entire Stage property from them, and his right of possession for the last fifteen in twelve years, gives him an undisputed title, also that three of the principal parties who were interested in the old Wells Fargo Stage Compy, and who had the right to give a deed have been dead for years and therefore can not give one, for that reason Wm. Salisbury sends you a warranty deed for the Wells Fargo part of the property, and a deed from Gilmer and Salisbury for the other portion. Please acknowledge receipt of the enclosed, soon as possible and if satisfactory, deposit the amount of the purchase money$700 with Wm. Henry Elinger for credit of the Montana Stage Compy, and oblige yours truly W. J. Townshend"

    Very fine.
