TitleLetter, 1862 Dec. 26, San Francisco, to George Winter
CreatorWinter, Charles
ContributorsWinter, George, 1810-1876
DescriptionHandwritten letter From: Charles Winter, San Francisco, Dec. 26, 1862 To: George Winter ALS, 4 p. (1 sheet, folded)
Description ContinuedAcknowledging G.W.'s letter of Sept. 21. His feelings upon retirement; he gets little done and procrastinates. He has received few letters from home; perhaps they are offended at his pro-Southern sentiments. They closed business on Nov. 1 and also started boarding at that time. They own a house which they are renting for more than the cost of boarding. He wanted to sell the business to William, but he could not raise the down payment, so he sold it to strangers who paid him in gold. Diatribe on the inability of the young to make the most of an opportunity and to know the value of money. Now that he is growing old, he must be careful of his money and is unwilling to extend himself to help anyone. They may purchase some land on the Pacific, out of San Francisco, on which to live. He will also build two more houses on the lots he already owns. They also plan to travel east. They just attended the wedding of Mary Robinson, once George Jr."s fiancee, to a man from Contra Costa.
