Item Description
  Letter, S. C. Pomeroy to Dear Hyatt [Thaddeus Hyatt]
Author: Pomeroy, S. C. (Samuel Clarke), 1816-1891
Date: August 6, 1857

Pomeroy again reports to Hyatt from Atchison regarding various issues having to do with their investments in that town--"the Rail Road matter," which went "well," had led Pomeroy to make tentative plans, it seems, to found a town across the river from Atchison on land he already owned to tie to the Hannibal & St. Joseph Railroad. "If the Rail Road can be put through next season, we can sell [Atchison] lots enough to make such sinners as we are rich as sinners ought to be."
