830 Equitable Building Denver, Colorado, August 19, 1914. Goerge E. Hyde, Esq., 3019 Burdette Omaha, Nebraska. Dear Sir:- Answering yours of August 3rd in regard to the exact loca¬tion of Bent's Fort, meaning thereby the old and original Bent's Fort, I beg to reply that said fort was located in the N.W. ¼ of the N.W. ¼ of Sec. 23 Tp 23 S. Range 54 W. in what is now Otero County, Colorado. This location is about five miles up the Arkansas River from the mouth of what is now known as Horse Creek. Col. William Bent built a later fort which would be approximately thirty-eight miles to the eastward of the present site, that, however, has no historic value. The location is also approximately seven miles from the town of La Junta. Hoping this information will be of service to you, I am, Yours truly, A.E Reynolds
