As per request of Prof. T. W. H.
Williams, our Kansas City agent, we
are herewith enclosing to you some
printed information pertaining to the
Bluck Diamond Development company.
The pamphlet of the managers report
of November 14 covers quite a his
tory of the Muck Diamond Develop
ment company from the date of in
corporation up to that time, which
will give you a very good Idea of what
this company has done.
Since the issuing of this report I
wish to say that well No. 6 has been
drilled and finished and proves to be
another good gas well; also the con
necting up of our wells to the Kansas
Natural Gas company's pipe Hue has
been pushed with all energy and is
This work would have been com
plted much sooner, but account of the
high water In the Neosho river and
the bad weather which has prevailed
In Kansas for several weeks, we
have been unable to get pipe delivered
from the city of Chanute, to our prop
erties, six miles east.
Fred A. Westcott, our manager. Just
returned from the Kansas field last
Wednesday where he spoilt several
days looking after the Intersts of the
company, and the work that is being
done Is certainly very gratifying, and.
barring accidents and unavoidable de
lays Kansas City will be burning
Black Diamond company's gas within
the next 30 days.
Everv stockholder will Join us in
rejoicing over the good work which
has been done by this company in Its
first year of existence, and the grand
succees we have made.
The time will come in the near fu
ture when the name of Black Dia
mond Development company will be
heralded in every community through
out the United States us one of the
grand successes achieved by "Grace,
Greenbacks and Grit."
The Black Diamond Development
company is another strong example of
co-operation and consolidation of
brains, money and energy, to which
ever ystockholder has contributed his
or her share in building Its success.
In regard to there beng any stock
for sale will say, that there is a small
amount of stock which can be had if
taken at once, price being uGc per
share with an allowance of 10 ikt
cent discount for cash in amounts of
$100.00 or more.
In addition to this will say that
there will be no stock for sale In a
very short time as the company's fi
nances are in good condition, as with
the amount of stock now under con
tract will have sufficient money for
all necessary needs to put on a divi
dend paying basis, und consequently
the sale of stock will be closed as soon
as the last share of this block of
stock Is contracted for.
Hoping you will give this .matter
your immediate consideration und ad
vise me of your wishes, I remain,
