Description June 15, 1863-February 1874; Business Notes and Brief Correspondence from Many People to Brigham Young. Includes requests for loans and payments. Many are letters of introduction, some written by Aaron Stein who was an agent for the Overland Mail Company. There are requests for Young to speak, for autographs, thank you notes for gifts, a request to bring gas works into Salt Lake City, and a request to send lucerne seed to Michigan. One letter from a Mr. Cox complains of being discharged by Brother Pyper for taking the name of the Deity in vain, which he says is a false charge. There are pleas for justice in cases of unfair pay. Some of the important visitors passing through Salt Lake City who sent letters of introduction are Count Erback from Austria; Charles Henry Robarts of London; Monsieur le Baron Gouldree' Boilleau, minister of France to Peru; Arthur F. Wheeler of England; Dr. S. S. Wood of England; Jacob Russel, esq., cashier of the Gold Exchange Bank of New York; etc. There is an invitation to attend the Beethoven Centennial Musical Festival in New York and a report on Young's stock kept at Logan. An amusing letter dated December 22, 1869, was for collection of a note made by Brigham Young in 1830. The original amount of the note was $18.50 but the sum of $16.75 had been paid, leaving a balance of $1.75--with compounded annual interest added, this amount was now $27.06, which he would be obliged if Young would forward
