Excellent descriptive letter, family, deaths, hardships
of life. 'two trips to mouth of St. Joseph's 40 miles with
2 yokes of oxen'. Alone overnight in the woods, wolves,
wildcats, bears, no fire or cover. 'We have cut, split,
and drawn (about 3/4 mile) nearly 5000 rails'. Has
been bad weather but soon will be planting. 3 1/2
pages full of news.
