1954 letter to Mary Boice from Harry Heffner
Abstract: 
Letter dated February 5, 1954 from Harry L. Heffner (Foreman from 1893 to 1905) to Mary Boice, wife of Frank S. Boice, owner and operator of the Empire Ranch at the time. The letter is a partial history of Walter L. Vail's acquisition and start of the Empire Land & Cattle Company holdings, cattle and horses in Pima County, Arizona. Researchers have commented that Harry Heffner’s oral and written recollections are subject to review and verification from other sources due to occasional factual error.
