Catalog Number 85.27.11
Object Name manuscript collection
Scope & Content letters; indenture

REMARKS:The bulk of this file is correspondence among Roy T. Rice, J.C. Redifer [formerly of Riddle], and the law firm of Neuner and Wimberley, seeking payment on a chattel mortgage made between Redifer and Rice, and witnessed by George A. Crane. Redifer apparently moved from Riddle to Heppner, OR, without paying an obligation owed to Rice. Letters were sent between April and October 1916 among the parties, with final settlement being acceptance of an amount less than the full balance owed Rice by Redifer. A secondary claim by an Elsie Wright against Rice is also mentioned in some letters. One letter is from George A. Crane, Mail Clerk of the Oregon Senate, to Rice, apparently in response to allegations by Rice that Crane had anticipated Redifer's poor security for a mortgage.; Additional materials include a letter from Sears, Roebuck to Rice, concerning instructions for lens settings on a camera.; Stored in the small manuscripts file in the Halon Room filing cabinet.
