Item Description
  Letter, A. Tuttle, Buffalo, New York, to Friend Gray [Alfred]
Author: Tuttle, A.
Date: June 25, 1857

Tuttle wrote from Buffalo, New York, about his plans to come to Kansas by the fall. Alfred Gray apparently was from Buffalo also and had settled in Quindaro, Kansas Territory. Tuttle wrote about bank failures and the poor economy in the east. He also wanted Gray to send printed information about Kansas as he thought it would attract some of those out of work. He inquired if any of the literature was in German as there were a number of out-of-work German immigrants in the area.
