Dated July 6, 1866. Signed by the former mayor of Los Angeles and owner of the Palos Verdes estate. Addressed to Mr. Aug W. Timms of San Pedro. One of the Sepulveda family, Diego Sepulveda, constructed a wharf on a point of land just below the government embarcadero and at the water's edge from which he ran stage coaches to Los Angeles. Timms Point, as the promontory was later known, got its name from August W Timms who had come to Los Angeles as an agent for several San Francisco firms. He towed in the hulls of two ships that had gone aground and as they in turn attracted sand and silt a jetty formed to give protection to his docks. Timms Point provided docks for Los Angeles in the first years of American occupation. Competing stage lines belonging to Sepulveda, Tomlinson and Timms and the firm of Alexander and Temple carried goods and passengers back and forth between Los Angeles and San Pedro.
