We have gone through the Eastman correspondence looking for an agreement between EKC and Cox. Thus far we have not found any sort of agreement between the two. I suspect that there was none. From a legal standpoint, Eastmans character was probably different enough to avoid any law suits, plus Eastmans resources were considerably larger than Coxs so Cox probably would not have tried anyway. We also have all of Eastmans financial records in the collection. There is no record of Eastman paying Cox.
This correspondence was forwarded to Dr. E. Margerum who is currently writing a biography of Palmer Cox.
