Brown's Hotel-Macon Ga-1872 Lettersheet
Item #: NEW-0016061

Click image to enlarge
This is a one page letter which continues on the back.  "A Looker On" is taking Alexander H Stephens, to whom the letter is written to task.  He questions whether Stephens is a Republican since "You gloat over the defeat of Greeley..." "I believe you have been bought by the Grant party." and more along this line.  He is referring to comments that Stephens had made in the Atlanta Daily Herald."

The beautiful graphic shows the first Brown's Hotel which burned in 1878.  The history of the two hotels is given in this link:

http://www.whatwasthere.com/browse.aspx#!/ll/32.8320922851563,-83.6281127929688/id/8926/info/details/zoom/14/

The Brown House, built in 1856, was one of many grand hotels in Macon and was conveniently located at Fourth and Plum Streets across the street from the Union Railway passenger terminal. The Brown House burned twice, strangely on the same date 43 years apart, once in 1878 and again in 1921. This 1894 photograph shows the second Brown house, which was not rebuilt after the second fire. The WGXA-TV station occupies the site today.

Deadwood Dakota Territory-Merchants Hotel-1880's Letters
Item #: NEW-0013227

Click image to enlarge
There are three letters in this lot, one written by E G Hayes to his wife at the Merchants Hotel in St. Paul Minnesota. and the other two from the Merchant's Hotel in Deadwood, D T.  The graphic letter sheets showing the hotel was the letter addressed to the wife and is seven pages long.  The advertising cover is from the Hotel in Deadwood.  The cancel is indistinct but presumably from Deadwood. The content of all three letters (four pages) is regarding the struggles of E G Hayes to bring his ill son home.  He was a soldier at Fort Meade.  He was able to do some sight seeing while attempting to go to Fort Meade.  ""visiting the large gold quartz mills here to day.  Some of them the largest in the world and gold quartz in the hills here to? twenty five such mills running for one hundred years.  There is now thirteen mills running five new ones building within four miles of Deadwood, turning out from 25 ? $125.00 per month for each mill.  The Terry Mills pays profit from all expenses of $75.00 per month."

His travel plans involved taking a stage to Bismark and then from there on a stage to Fort Meade (a distance of 280 miles by stage according to Hayes) .  "I found Joseph in the hospital helpless by permission from the Dakota Department I will undertake to move him from Fort Meade to Fort Lincoln 280 miles by stage and if possible will get permission to bring him home from Fort Lincoln if he can stand the ride though General Sturgis promised to detail assistance in getting him through if I can engage a stage for the purpose to Lincoln"..." I don't know if he can stand it or not as his case is a bad one and no hopes for him here as is the opinion of Dr. Wilson Post Surgeon of Fort Meade..."

"Fort Meade is beautifully  located at the foot of the black hills near Bane Butte (?) pyramid.  Deadwood is located in the mountains and very romantic but full of people and teams."   

The fate of Joseph Hayes is unknown to me.E.G. Hayes was the President of the  Lawrenceburg Indiana National Bank.

I have not shown a scan of the third letter which is on the same advertising lettersheet from Deadwood.  There is only one cover in the lot.
