[Letter from John C. Wallis to J. D. and D. C. Giddings - June 16, 1871]

Description: Letter from John C. Wallis to J. D. and D. C. Giddings. Wallis expresses his consternation that he may have to pay the note that W. J. Armstrong made against Colonel Browning and himself. He is disappointed that Soule University did not protect him against the claim and insists that he will only pay it if Col. Browning pays half and if he can pay it after July 10th. If any more claims are made against him as a result of his holding the university's deed of trust, he will consult the Giddings brothers for legal assistance. Wallis ends by inquiring about claims that may have been settled already.

[Letter from B. D. Dashiell to J. D. Giddings - June 3, 1872]

Description: Letter from B. D. Dashiell to Hon. J. D. Giddings. Dashiell explains that he has visited Mr. Stone and some of the stockholders, and they are unwilling to transfer. Stone says that he can prove Mr. Carmer failed to exact the payment of stock and therefore take recourse on the boarding house, yet Dashiell claims that Stone is and was president of the board of stockholders and also failed to exact the unpaid stock. The stockholders do not trust Dashiell as their advisor because they think he is attempting to get the best bargain that he can for Mrs. Carmer.
