PROPRIETORS OF Oregon Lumber Co. and North Powder Mill’g Co. also Dealers in General Merchandise. All Bills of Lumber Cut to Order on Short Notice. HALL, ECCLES & CO., Lumbermen. MANUFACTURERS OF ALL KINDS OF DRESSED LUMBER AND MOULDING. North Powder, Oregon, Feby 28th 1887 David Eccles Ogden Utah Dear Sir: I hear nothing from the bookeeper that was coming last week and I am anxious to go home because the railroads are calling in all their passes under the inter state commerce law – and are to get them all in before April first and I would like to get back before another pay day and I could leave better now than any other time I know of. Think you would wire me as soon as you get this when he will be here. If you come with him it is not so important that I be here on his arrival. We have good weather now, but the last 3 weeks it has snowed every day at the mill and it has been hard work to keep up steam. As the wood is all covered with snow and ice – and the logs froze solid. Think it will be better weather now. Shipped 8000 ties in Feby and 6000 feet of piling. We are just about out of hay and none to be had less than 1500 a ton. I must try to get some shipped in this week as we have only a few days stock left. If the snow would go it would be cheaper. Your Truly, Theo F Hall
