The Clarence Darrow Letters

Jacob C. Lutz to Paul Darrow, April 25, 1912

The reference to Ensign could be to Charles B. Ensign (1860 - 1942) or his brother, Adelbert L. Ensign or to their firm, C. B. Ensign & Co. The Ensign firm, based in Chicago, was used by Clarence Darrow and his son as an investment bank for their Greeley Gas & Fuel Company in Colorado.

Mr. Paul E. Darrow

Greeley Colo -

Dear Mr. Darrow:

Yours at hand in reference to bonds. We have # 1 & 2, 15 to 19 inc. and 45 to 50 inc.

I wrote your father shortly after indictment but have had no reply - Do not suppose he feels like writing until he is cleared which I fully believe and trust he will be.

Yours truly

J. C. Lutz
