From The Galveston Daily News
The Monitor says: The present indications are that there will be meat enough in Denton county to fatten every hog in the state. . .G.W. Erwin writes to the Monitor from Lewisville, Denton county, as follows: I am making good progress developing mineral deposits, and the indications prove more favorable daily. Good miners and experts pronounced the indications for coal, lead and copper as fine as they ever saw. The surface shows iron; then comes slate, thin layers of cannel coal, which burns well, then lead silver and copper. Oil indications are pronounced as good as in the famous Pennsylvania oil region, and our shaft is now 36 feet deep and progressing well.
Thanks to Patrice for sending me that.
