Item Description
  Letter, John Vansickle to Dear Sir
Author: Vansickle, John H.
Date: December 11, 1858

John Vansickle wrote from Bourbon County regarding his business selling goods, which was "on the gaining hand" since he was the only merchant from the "river clear to the state line." There had been three inches of snow, he said, but the temperature had not yet reached zero. Vansickle again invited the recipient of this letter to visit him in the spring.
