Letter, April 16, 1825, T[homas] Dunlap, Philadelphia lawyer, author, and industrialist, to General R. K. Call, 2 pp., agreeing to supply capital ''to employ in the purchase of land in Florida the sum of Twenty five Thousand Dollars . . . If the Government grant to Lafayette is yet attainable the Gentlemen concerned would prefer that . . . if not, they wish you to use your own judgment in general purchases of land . . . the object of the present speculation is not that of a permanent investment nor of purchases requiring any very considerable length of time to make them profitable, but . . . a handsome profit with prompt returns. . .''
