On offer are three [3] original handwritten manuscript letters authored by Paul Gillie of Lakeview in the Nicola Valley British Columbia Canada. Two are dated 1883, January 15th and June 16th, the last dated February 18th, 1886. Gillie writes in the first two of land matters including of particular interest the settlement of ownership of Indian land, wherein Mr. Gillie notes "The Indians are to get 15 acres and I am to get 175 acres of pasture land. That is all the pasture land on my side of the Creek". The early letters also ask the recipient, Mr. Lettier of Victoria, British Columbia to have his Crown Land registered as he has paid for it. The later letter makes reference to persistent requests within the last few months for the Crown Land registry and he assumes it is lost in transit. Each letter is complete, with one being double-sided. Two are on cream-colored lined paper, and the other is on unlined white paper. Each letter measures 5 inches x 8 inches. All are in nice condition and are interesting examples of pioneer British Columbia ephemera. VG.
