# 81 for 100 shares to WR Hopkins. Signed by WR Hopkins and Robert Soulter. Both mentioned in the History of Arizona by Farish. Dateline New York 1860, Incorporated in 1860. Not cancelled. Different quartz mining vignette. Geo F Nesbitt & Co. printer. Rips are fold edges. Very good! "This company is working a copper mine, situated forty miles from Fort Breckenridge at the junction of the San Pedro and Arivaca Rivers, and from three to four miles south of the Gila. The road known as the Leach Wagon Road, near by, renders the transportation of the ores and provisions quite easy. It is under the direction of Mr. A. B. Gray, ex-surveyor of the United States attached to the commission of the Mexican frontiers, and engineer-in-chief of the Pacific Railroad. Mr. Hopkins is the engineer of the mines; the house of Soulter, of New York is the principal owner." [History of Arizona by Farish] State: Arizona City: Fort Breckinridge Date: 1860
