William M. Gwin letter : to Thomas H. Bayly : by William McKendree Gwin( )

1 edition published in 1850 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Letter concerning a floating dry dock for the Port of San Francisco. Sent just months after the start of the Gold Rush, Gwin notes in his letter that the House Ways and Means Committee has approved the funding and construction of a dock. However, no date is set for construction, which creates doubt as to its importance. Gwin's plea to Bayley [sic], who was chairman of the Committee, stresses the importance of a dock for economic and commercial reasons due to the Gold Rush, as well as potential usage by the merchant and naval service. At the conclusion of the letter is an additional recommendation signed by E. Gilbert and G.W. Wright
