Letter is datelined In Franco, February 4, 1861. Cover has an address of Feb. 4. Yet how can a Wells Fargo cover come from France. and why has the cover been glued on to make this a coverless letter? Letter is from Augustin Roger and addressed to Donacio Marzon. Something happened to G Maldonado (ugly bad treat) and this letter seems to be trying to get to the bottom of it. Accompanying documentation shows the the Maldonado brothers owned the Mexican mine and sold it in 1863.
