Item Description
  Letter, Moses C. Sessions to "Dear Sir"
Author: Sessions, Moses C.
Date: January 10, 1858

Sessions settled in Centerville, Linn County on October 17, 1857. In this letter, he describes the country around Centerville, including the [perary], and the lack of timber and water except in [cricks] and [revenes]. He lists the kinds of trees found and describes how those that raise hogs let them roam. He also describes the wild life in the area. He spells phonetically so portions of the letter are hard to understand.
