4. That we have acted in the whole transaction in the most perfect good faith, and made every effort, before our deed was perfected, to have all claims settled. We even went personally, and sent notice by letter, and verbally on several occasions to have claimants appear and prove their claims, as required by the rules of your Board. We did not press the perfecting of the deed, but left the Government entirely free to take its own time in the matter.

We therefore most earnestly protest against the awarding of any claims included in our Royal Patent, not specially exempted in the instrument itself, as above set forth.

It is unnecessary for us to do more that faint [point?] at the confusion that must ensue, and the destruction of all confidence in land titles, if Royal Patents are allowed to be disturbed, and purchases of government land subjected to litigation and annoyance in maintaining their rights. There are points upon which every member of your Board will be able to pass a just opinion, and see their bearing.

We therefore submit the above fact, and make this our protest, in the full behalf that you will make no awards to conflict with the Royal Patent we hold, and for which we have paid the government a full and fair equivalent.
Very respectfully, Your obedient Servants
Edwin 0. Hall, Henry Dimone [Dimone or Simone]
