This lot contains over 300 letters of correspondences between cattle owners, commissioners, and merchants. Most letters are hand written while others are typed; 1904-1907. When typed, there is room to hand-write the cattle brand in question. The problem of estray sales is front-and-center in discussion. All letters appear cordial with an underlying tone of anger. Open range cattle seem to be a problem for the owner when they are sold by someone other than the owner. Some brand fixing duly noted. Brands are noted on sales receipts and make great reading.
