E.S. Bates Letters, The Society of California Pioneers
Donor and date of acquisition is unknown.
The details concerning who E.S. Bates is are vague. From this letter, regarding money that Mr. Bates is requesting from Mr. Daugner, it seems as though Mr. Bates is in dire need of money. He is requesting that Mr. Daugner not hesitate to send any money that he has saved up.
This folder contains a handwritten letter, written from San Francisco on June 20th 1862, addressed to Mr. Daugner. On the upper left hand side of the letter is a red, white and blue soldier next to an American flag, printed on the stationary. Bates is requesting a summary of his bank accounts from Mr. Daugner, because he is prospecting for gold. Bates notes that there are many "Columbia boys" out here, in San Francisco.
