Object Name Fonds
Scope & Content Fonds - Folder contains various documents from an original organizer box titled "Letters" and "August 1st, 1901." According to the donor these papers relate to the business affairs of G.W. (George Washington) Parfet. The organizer contains bound cardstock separator pages with alphabetic tabs.

The following documents were found grouped together under the alphabetic tab "G", and include:

*A typed letter from the Geijsbeek Pottery Company to Parfet offering him a mortgage note in lieu of payment on his account, due to the pottery company's indebtedness.

*2 typed letters from Woods & Rubey Bankers of Golden, Colo., both dated Nov 12, 1902, notifying Parfet that he is to pay the specified amounts to cover expenses from the foreclosure sale of Geijsbeek Pottery Company.

*A typed letter from E. J. Gregory, Insurance Loans and Real Estate, to Prof. A.H. Dunn offering a list of farms for sale in the Fort Collins area, from 20 acres at $2250 to 160 acres for $4000. The company invites Prof. Dunn's "friend" to visit any of the properties for sale.

*A typed letter and a Western Union Telegram from the United States Geological Survey, the letter dated Oct. 24, 1903 and the telegram dated Oct. 27, 1903. They both request Parfet fill out and return forms related to the Census, required by the government promptly, as he is one of the "very few mining companies still delignquent."
