This letter is from Wong Fook’s employer. Wong Fook lost his original certificate of residence about 1901 or 2. He reapplied about three years later and received a duplicate certificate. That certificate was destroyed in a fire on 12th April 1909.
In the above letter Mr. Seufert states “…and Seid Beck can tell more about them then I can, he suplys [sic] the help here.”
Seid Beck (sometimes spelled Back) was a merchant and labor broker in Portland.

Hi Trish…..My sister in Portland used to be good friends with Seid sisters. Too bad this is a bit late. I’ll check to see if the sisters are still alive the next time I go to Portland. Loretta
I will try to find more on Seid Beck. It will be great if you have more information from the Seid sisters.
