|Collection of letters of Charles Horsfall
|Charles G. Horsfall to Owen Horsfall regarding his separation from his wife, the strike in Koykuk, politics and the telegraph system
|07 September 1904
|Horsfall, Charles G. (fl. 1900-1910)
|Plans to go to the Koyukuks. States his chances of obtaining a mail position are "nil." Writes that he has "given [Mary] freedom through the court" and expects she will choose another man. He still respects her but feels that both she and the children are no longer his. [continued on 09/10] Reports that he heard that the reported strike in Koyuk was a fraud. Fears " things are going from bad to worse throughout the States on account of the Presidential election" and thinks "the money power will elect Parker, for Roosevelt does no appear to be En-rapport with the trusts, and they represent the money power and the people." Urges Owen to read "Frenzied Finance" by Thomas W. Lawson in July number of Everybody's Magazine. The telegraph system there seems promising.
