# 179 for 6 shares to John Agnew. Signed by George Wolfe and president James Wolfe. Dateline February 1864. Incorporated June 1, 1863. Not cancelled. Revenue stamp seems to have been removed. Two mining vignettes. Alta Job Print. Stains, rips and tears. But a short-lived mining operation that had great press early on. "The Hinchman Mining Company, of El Dorado County, seven miles north of Placerville, have made their arrangements in this city, and perfected their plant for a sixty stamp steam quartz mill. The brilliant prospects of this company seem to justify the erection of a superior mill, which, when complete, will be a first class one. It is gratifying to see our foundries and machine shops crowded with work as they are at present." [California Daily Alta, September 20, 1863] But Mr. Agnew seems to have invested in this company at the wrong time! On June 2, 1864 a notice was filed in local papers that anyone with a claim against this company had 30 days to submit it. The Mill Indebtedness Committee would disperse what funds were available.
