This is a very unique and historically interesting piece. It is well known that Boston was actively engaged in the Colorado mining scene c1880. The cover is dated August 4, 1880. The corner advertising is for the Colorado Mining Exchange, AJ Ware & Co., 292 Washington Street, Boston. The letter is from D. McMartin. It is to George B Holland of Walpole, New Hampshire. It addresses an opportunity to sell Colorado stock at a nominal fee of 10%. The first stock mention is the Silver Lake Mining Company. Silver Lake was close to Silverton and the birth place of Colorado mining. The letterhead is of the Colorado Mining Exchange and lists AJ Ware of Leadville, OC French of Denver and EH Goff, D McMartin and EH Hastings as members! Cover and Letter have ink that has expanded over the years. Still the letter is quite easy to read. RARE! State: Colorado City: Boston Date: 1880
