THE CARTHAGE TOWN COMPANY, INCORPORATED Capital Stock, $20,000.00
Carthage, Kansas, April 2, 1885

Yours of Nov. 23 received.
Carthage lots are priced at $75 to $150 for business lots
and $20 to $50 for residence. The town is growing nicely.
There are good school
sections from six miles out and farther,
most of the school land sold has been at three dollars
Pre-emption and homestead claims are about 12 to 20
miles from Carthage if you want good ones.
I don't think it would be advisable to start Abstract Books
till our County is organized. We think Carthage promises
well for County Seat.
