Beach Valley K. T. April 22nd 1860 Hon S. N. Wood,
Dear Sir, I write today to ask your advice in regard to my bridge matters,
As you are already aware of my having a charter and a renewal of it also, I will proceed to state the case as near as I can- Last fall aman by the name of Wm Edwards and some others built a bridge with in the limits of the charter knowing that I was going to build mine, they said at the time that their bridge was merely temporary, but since I have completed mine they have continued to use theirs and have made it a free bridge although they have received toll on it since mine was ready for crossing. They now meet trains on the road to induce them to cross their bridge. I wish to know if anything can be done with them at law, Can I sue them for tresspass before a Justice of the Peace and have the bridge removed, if so I wish to proceed forth with. Please write immediately and let me know the amt of your fees & I will send them forth with
Yours Truly A J Beach
