Number 88 for 10 shares to John D Graham, trustee. 1878. Signed by Charles Cranz Jr. and John Haynes. Graham was not only a trustee, he was the managing director. Excellent condition. Excerpts from their prospectus says, "The Saint Louis Mine, belonging to the Toltec Syndicate, lies about one mile northeasterly from Camp Toltec, on the eastern end of the Empress of India lode. This wonderful lode, on its eastern end, forks out into three distinct branches, while other lodes intersect it at various places. The Saint Louis Mine, though on the main fork of the Empress of India, is located as on the General Craig lode." John E. Magee, superintendent. Professor Thomas Davis says, "Of the mineral richness of the mines in this section, and especially of those belonging to what is known as the Toltec Syndicate of San Francisco, there can be no doubt whatever." In general "The sudden and marvelous growth of this section can only be accounted for by the ascertained extraordinary wealth of its acres of mountains, containing gold, silver, lead, copper, etc.; enough, in the general estimation, to enrich the present generation."
