J. H. Crawford, Attorney at Law Union, Oregon, August 17th 1887 David Eccles Esq Dear Sir I am at this moment in receipt of a letter from Mr. Ramsey saying that “Mr. Hall declines to have him or any one else appointed receiver without fighting it. That nothing has been done and that every thing is just as it was when you left.” I am satisfied that nothing can or will be done until you force the matter into a Court of Equity for a disolution of the Partnership to find the showing that you can make of Hall’s mismanagement will it seems to me entitle you to a Receiver almost “as a matter of cours.” But you will I am satisfied have to be here in order to do that. J. H. Crawford, Attorney at Law Union, Oregon, …..188 as it is apparent to my mind that Mr. R. does not desire to antagonize Mr. Hall by taking the initiatory steps himself. Business calls me to Joseph Wallowa Co. Circuit Court meets there next Monday. I will have to leave here on Saturday in order to reach there on time the distance being about 80 miles by stage. If not called home sooner I will probably be gone about ten days. You can address me at that point, let me know what course you purpose taking and at what time you wish to move in the matter & I will be on hand at your service. Yours J. H. Crawford
