|Charles G. Horsfall to "Owen and all" describing his work on building a waterwheel and piers, the health of the Eskimos and a Government Experimental farm
|27 April 1906
|Horsfall, Charles G. (fl. 1900-1910)
|Discusses working for three partners on building a waterwheel and piers at the junction of the Copper and Svlutiva rivers. States that the scarcity of horses has made moving supplies difficult and instead they have had to chop down logs in the nearby woods and haul them to the site. The wheel "will be 12' diameter. by 14' wide and operated by the ordinary river current." Includes a diagram on page 4 of the piers he has built thus far. Informs that many of the Eskimo are sick and the U.S. Government teacher and his wife are looking after them. Mentions there is a Government Experimental farm but it is on poor ground.
