Letter, James R. Mead to My dear Mother
Authors: Mead, James R.
Date: December 25, 1860
In this letter addressed to his mother, James Mead wrote about his life out on the frontier near the Saline River, Kansas Territory. He assured her that he had plenty of groceries, including sugar, meal, flour, beans and apples, as well as coffee and tea. He also informed her that he had sent the family a load of buffalo meat and robes, and he discussed the local fur trade, listing different animals in the area. Mead spoke briefly of his long term plans, stating that he would ultimately like to go into stock raising. Throughout the letter, he emphasized the flourishing trade going on in Kansas, in one instance writing that "everybody trades."
