[D8416AWL], Letter from Samuel Insull to Louis Glass, March 13th, 1884

Editor's Notes

Your favor of the 2nd rec'd and also the nugget, for which accept my thanks. Doubtless the black sand will arrive in due time. I will tell TAE about his namesake when he returns. If you don't like the samples Major Frank brings we can send more. Your kind invitation to Cherokee shall be avialed. "I have never been West, and I think that you have lots of sights which would please a "blasted degenerated Britisher". You entirely mistake the tendency and bent of the writers weaknesses if you imagine that I am fond of the glitter and blaze of the harlot palaces of Europe, on the contrary while on the other side he confined his sigh seeing to orange groves, gambling houses and Chruches, and a picture gallery here and there in order to relieve the monotony." Etc. "Anyone who has seen so little should certainly be called Christian. I am going into sackcloth and ashes in consequence of the very low estimate you have of my character. Sent to Glass c/o Spring Valley Hydraulic Gold Co.
