C. A. Earle Rinker letter to his mother, June 7, 1908, page 2

Full Text

marriage will be quite a surprise for Myrta. I know Dady will have plenty of work for me if I was there! Well I might be better off for I don't look for things to open up here until after the election and maybe not then. Jeff is thinking some of going back to work on his Dady's farm if he gets out of a job, and it looks as though his store will have to close Now Dady needs all the money he can get and I don't want him to send me money for I will not go hungry. Afraid I cannot tell you very well on paper what it means to apex a mine. Now say there is a ledge or vein of ore that is cropping out or sticking out of the ground all along one side of our field but that vein is not straight up and down but dips down and goes down on Clint's side of the fence. Now Clint will be mining on his side of the fence and get into this vein that has the top (called apex of the vein) on our side of the fence.
