OREGON CITY, OREGON, September 2, 1905

Mr. Heye
52  Broadway,
New York City,

Dear Sir:-

I have, placed in my hands for sale, a collection of about six thousand arrowheads, spears, stone knives, hammers, beads, mortars, pestles, and other Indian curios. They vary in value from one to upwards of a hundred dollars. We do not desire to break upthe collection, but wish to dispose of it as a whole. The total collection is valued at $6000. It is not catalogued or photographed. Before making such an extensive purchase, you would probably want some one to come and make an examination of it, anyway. A little later I may be able to arrange for some photographs of the collection, but at present Mr. Stevens is not able to attend to it. To a prospective purchaser I can probably send such photographs in a short time. Hoping this may be of interest to you, I am

Yours Very Truly,
C. H. Dye
