Short, but sweet letter introducing GW Swan to George Hearst. Hearst need no introduction! He was a mining man turned newspaper mogul. He also built a rather imposing mansion known as Hearst Castle. Swan was responsible for the first improved road from Placerville to Lake Tahoe with the advent of the Comstock Silver Rush. Snow was a lawyer. It seems Swan worked with Snow at Laporte. "I wanted a mine of dividend paying capacity." He also wanted it cheap! State: California City: San Francisco Date: 1879
