Letter, James [R. Mead] to My dear Father
Authors: Mead, James R.
Date: August 26, 1860
In this letter, written from Burlingame, Kansas Territory, James R. Mead informed his father that he had come back to eastern Kansas to work for Mr. Titus, presumably the pro-slavery Colonel Titus. Mead still maintained a ranch and trading post on the Saline River. Mead also wrote to his father about a home that he was building in Salina, Kansas Territory. He called his buffalo hunting "a wholesale butchering establishment," and he was going to cure the meat. Apparently he had developed quite a reputation in the area, and he had been made sheriff of Saline County.
