Mr. S.G. Burns,
New Mexico
My dear Burns:--
Mr. Joseph Lawrence writes that he is one of a Syndicate who are investigating a property known as the "San Ramon" Gold Mine at Guerrero, Province of Chihuahua, Mexico; the owner of it being Mr. J. Howard Furman, who is now in London. The Syndicate wil send out Mr. J.M. Burnup with Mr. Furman to investigate the matter, and Mr. Lawrence would like you to join them and give him a personal report stating whether in your judgment it is a safe and good investment for him. I have cabled Mr. Lawrence that we would try and arrange so that you could go, and wish you would take the matter up with the Gallestic people, and see whether you can arrange to get off for a couple of weeks, telegraphing me here what you learn, also what fee you would require for the examination. Mr. Lawrence, of course, paying your expenses.
Please give this matter your prompt attention, as Messrs Burnup and Furman are now on the Ocean. If you can arrange to go with them, please telegraph me your opinion on the property, so that I may cable it to Mr. Lawrence.
Yours very truly,
