Title Letter from Heriot Clarkson to J. Allen Austin
Date January 4, 1939
Description Replies to Austin's letter. Expresses indignation at the articles that Capus Waynick and Charles Ross were behind in High Point Enterprise and the News and Observer respectively. He says the jury's verdict vindicated the Switzerland Company but left "wreckage and ruin" at Little Switzerland.
Commentary The "wreckage and ruin" statement may be referring to how much Clarkson had to put into legal battle as well as what he was losing from land. Box 10, folder 539.
