Prentice, James Douglas, 1861-1911. Gang Ranch; Manager, Western Canadian Ranching Company

Letter from Theodore Davie, May 24, 1894, replying to a letter from Prentice stating that Davie had threatened to withhold money set aside in the estimates to reimburse the Western Canadian Ranching Company for road building if Prentice ran as an opposition candidate.
