Letter, A. J. Beach to S. N. Wood
Authors: Beach, A. J.
Date: April 22, 1860
Writing from Beach Valley (Rice Co.), K.T., A. J. Beach sought Wood's legal advice with regard to his options in a bridge dispute. It seemed that Beach had received a charter to build a toll bridge [over Cow Creek], and another party (William Edwards, et al) put up a "temporary" one before his was finished. They were now diverting traffic away from Beach's completed bridge. "I wish to know if anything can be done with them at law . . ."

Letter, A. J. Beach to [Samuel N.] Wood & Perkins
Authors: Beach, A. J.
Date: May 6, 1860
As with his letter to Wood of April 22, A. J. Beach explained his Cow Creek bridge dispute with William Edwards and O. G. Stanley, but here Beach seemed to officially retain the services of Wood & Perkins. "I can prove," wrote Beach, "that they have asked trains to cross their bridge, taken toll on it, and repaired it with the avowed intention of making it a free bridge and taking the travel away from mine." Beach claimed to be losing $20 a day in tolls.
