Two letters from Chestnut Run, near Burning Springs, Wirt Co. to Robert Caldweel and Edward Wright of Thompsonville, Washington Co., PA. Ruble inquires whether Caldwell and Wright desire continue drilling for oil on his land. He mentions it would be safe for them to visit, despite the Civil War, since there are many Pennsylvanians working there who move about freely.
