 Parkersburg, April l2, lB6S.
Dan
I want you to consider this a private note. Do not let
anyone see it. If you can sell the shares of stock which you
and I hold together for SSD more tan it cost do, but get more
if you can, say $l2UU.
All the reports that we heard before starting from home
are false. There is no well producing a single drop of oil
this side of Burning Springs, hence none near Palty Farm.
The celebrated Rathbone Well only produces about S bar.
per day. Ona of the walls at Burning Springs represented in
?hiladelphia as producing lDU bar. only produces 3 bar. It
never produced more than ZS. The wells at Burning Springs
produce on an average about 3 to S bar. per day and great many
abandined wells can be seen. .
I tell you Dan, B. Springs is the devils home. They ask
SZUGG bonus and l/3 of the oil for a lease of S/B of an acre.
We may find some place but the prospects are poor, now
