Editorial Title: George W. Glover to Mary Baker Eddy, April 24, 1881
Author: George W. Glover 
Recipient: Mary Baker Eddy 
Date: April 24, 1881
Manuscript Description: Handwritten for George W. Glover on lined paper from Broughton, Lawrence County, Dakota.
Editorial Note: Glover writes to thank Eddy for her recent letter (not extant). He says they've had one of the hardest winters but are hopeful things will improve now that spring has arrived. He writes about a mining claim he found in January and has been working to develop; however, he needed to suspend work due to lack of funds. He is working now for wages, and he mentions the challenges of getting a loan for less than 30% per month. He says he needs $500-$800 ($12,614.79 to $20,183.66 in 2016) to continue work on the mine, and he expects "immense returns" once he has the capital to continue developing it. He encourages Eddy to take a vacation and come west, and he mentions that there will be a railroad coming soon and more investment in their area as well. He closes by sending his love to the Eddys and love from Nellie and the children.
