  • 1864-1866, 1873-1874

He was apparently a manager of the North American Gold Mining Company at the time the letters were written. He wrote from Waverley either to McClure, or his associate, Charles Barrett, of Boston, providing updates every few days on mining progress. His letters describe equipment used, drilling methods, and similar information. (2) The second set, 166 letters, 1873-1874, consists of miscellaneous correpondence written to McClure in Boston. Some letters are from associates at the mining operations in Waverley, reporting on activities in the mines; others are from business associates in the United States, commenting on mutual investments, other mining ventures, and financial matters. There are also a few letters of a personal nature from friends and family members.
