Gansl, Albert & Cullen, Jeffrey
XI/38/114, 1 box
After the liquidation of Benjamin Davidson's firm, Gansl and Cullen succeeded as NMR's agents in San Francisco. Jeffrey Cullen's father and uncles had worked for Nathan Rothschild; and he himself worked for Rothschilds from the age of 15. He was sent to Australia to manage the Montefiore estates there, and subsequently, in 1855, was sent to San Francisco. The letters deal largely with routine business, providing details of drafts and remittances as well as real property and the state of the quicksilver market. In 1880 the agency was liquidated.
