CreatorWinter, Charles
ContributorsWinter, George, 1810-1876
DescriptionHandwritten letter From: Charles Winter, San Francisco, Sept. 20, 1864 To: George Winter ALS, 4 p. (1 sheet, folded)
Description ContinuedAcknowledging G.W.'s letters of June and July. His plans to travel have been postponed by his having to lend Robert a large sum of money. Another person, to whom Charles had loaned $3500, has declared bankruptcy, and he will have to guarantee that amount as well. Business has suffered greatly because of the war, and the only hope is a change of administration. He hears little from Cincinnati, perhaps because of some misunderstandings that arose during his last visit there. Complaints about the lack of courtesy and proper feeling within the family. He hopes to bring the remains of his late wife back to Spring Grove to be buried there. Description of the monument he has commissioned. Saw George (Jr.) ten days ago; he is working as a (house) painter, but plans to return to mining in Mexico, although Charles feels he will not succeed. Concerned about his own financial situation and the ingratitude of those he has helped.
