These four letters from Pelham W. Ames are addressed to H. H. Sheldon, Assistant Superintendent of the Sutro Tunnel Company. These letters are addressed from December 9, 1878 to December 16, 1878. The dates are important as the Sutro Tunnel had reached the Savage Mine only three months earlier. December 9: Sutro's salary, interesting conversation about German caps which don't fit with New York caps, use the Bank of Nevada and a Silver Draft, etc. December 11: if you want custom wagon wheels I need hub and spoke dimensions, explosive car only leaves San Francisco only on Wednesday, etc. December 14: Isaac Requa's communication, trial balance, will take care of wheels, etc. December 16: Sutro will address Requa's request - do nothing, wagon wheels will be shipped ASAP, Savage mine has put a pump in their drift, etc. Each letter contains recent purchases and prices. One of which Mr. Ames thinks is preposterous. The University of Nevada Special Collections contain 14 more letters from 1877 to 1880. State: Nevada City: Sutro, Lyon Date: 1878
