Item Description
  Letter, James [Mead] to My dear Father
Author: Mead, James R.
Date: January 11, 1861

In this letter, James R. Mead wrote to his father concerning his buffalo hunting and trading. He had just returned from a trading trip, but he did not know what to do with all of the robes, so he planned to send them to his father. He included some advice about the best way to care for and sell these robes. He was hoping to come home to Davenport, Iowa for a visit in the spring, but only if the fur prices were on the rise; in a few days he was heading north to get more furs.
