HANDWRITTEN THREE-PAGE LETTER BY A. H. "SHANGHAI" PIERCE ON HIS ELABORATE "STOCK-RAISER AND CATTLE DEALER, B. U. RANCH LETTERHEAD
Written by A. H. "Shanghai" Pierce, 1893., Pierce Station, Texas. First edition. 9 1/2" x 6" Three-page letter written in ink on his elaborate steer decorated "Office of A. H. Pierce, Stock-Raiser and Cattle Dealer. Address Pierce Station, P. O., B. U. Ranch, Tex., Oct. 26th, 1893." stationery. Pierce is writing to Mr. D. C. Procter, who is quite probably an attorney, and is asking him to prepare a "deed of trust" for him. He explains to Mr. Procter that he has sold 1500 head of cattle to a member of the Miller Family who resides in Matagorda County, Texas and Miller has made payment for a portion of the cattle as per agreement between the two men. He says further in the letter, "there are no judgments against him or any suits filed now, I want a deed of trust to cover all his cattle & 2nd deed of trust on the cattle I sold him so as to protect him against any of his creditors ----." He states further that "Miller will be here Saturday by noon & will leave for home on the train the same evening. As you are a little out of shape would it not seem to you to take a run down here on a pleasant trip Friday & fix up the papers & return Sunday morning." He also says that this is not a big job and if Procter cannot make the trip then please write Pierce with the details as to how to get his request done. Signed A. H. Pierce.
