Autograph Letter, Signed (ALS) (3 letters)

1874. Ephemera. Item #296232

Three handwritten letters (four pages in all) by Hoitt (1833 - 1905) to San Diego attorney S. S. Sanborn, all dating 1874 (February 10, February 18, and May 18). The letters exhibit both a friendly tone ('how is your family?') and the writer's underlined exasperation ('my tax receipts have not come / please explain at once'). One letter inquires as to the 'worth per acre' of a Pueblo land lot. All on Hoitt's letterhead as a Real Estate Stock and Money Broker. Hoitt served in the state assembly and as well as Superintendent of Public Instruction for the State of California. Letters appear to have been pasted by the rear left-side edge into a book and later removed, with strip of pasted paper still attached; strip just touching script on the one leaf written on both sides. Pages had been folded for mailing. Letters written and signed by Hoitt.
