Item Description
  Letter, A. Tuttle, Buffalo, New York, to Abelard Guthrie
Author: Tuttle, A.
Date: July 1, 1857

This letter related to an earlier one Tuttle wrote to Alfred Gray. He had made arrangements to purchase land from Guthrie and suggested he get the money from Gray or write to Tuttle directly. Mr. Tuttle expressed his hopes for the development of Quindaro but also his fears if the land falls into the hands of non-resident speculators. He also stated that any association of Mr. S. N. Simpson with the town would injure its prospects.
