Olympia, WT [Washington Territory] Oct. 15, 1869
Hon. J. Patton Anderson
I am told that you own Lot no. 5 in Block no. 10 in this town and that is was sold
for taxes over one year ago. Some more than a year since I purchased the next half of
Serial Block 10 for $25 per lot, and I would like to purchase your lot no. 5 in Block 10
and will offer you $100 for the same clear of taxes and with a good title. I shall offer
Gen. Adair the same for the adjoining lot no. 6 in same block. Please write me and
