Collection Scope and Content Note

The small collection consists of only 14 letters, written by Edwin Price to his brother James. One, written March 16, 1867 from Warehouse Point, Connecticut, indicates Edwin's restlessness and his desire to have his brother join him in business in Connecticut. There is a brief note to James at the end of this letter from their sister Emma, who was home on vacation from school. Edwin wrote the rest of the letters in 1870 from Denver, Colorado. He writes of his excitement about business and property prospects in Denver, the fast rate of population growth, prices, buildings, railroads, overland travel, land speculation, game, crops, and other topics. Enclosed in the letter dated Nov. 11, 1870 is a short newspaper extract describing the territory of Colorado, which Edwin asks James to post in his shop in Warehouse Point.
