ZEIT1868
THEMAFirmenbeschreibung
TEXTOwned originally, 26.000 acres, lying on both sides of the river; and who, instead of attempting a great speculation, disposed of the land on very favorable terms, and encouraged manufacturing enterprises. This Company was incorporated in July, 1831, and commenced operations in 1839. Its capital was originally 1.000.000, but has since been increased to 3.000.000. Its business comprises the selling of lands, letting water-power, and manufacturing cotton goods and machinery, including locomotives. In all these enterprises, the Company has been remarkably successful; and during the last two years it declared annual dividends of 40 per cent, upon its capital stock. When in full operation, this Company gives employment to over 3000 persons.
