Untitled Document Osawatomie K T June 22/55

Dear Father

We received your letter from Rockford, Ill this week and are very glad that you are going to get through there soon and that you are going to be here before fall. in answar to your questions about what you will need for your company I would say that I have one acre of corn that looks very well and some beans and sqwashes and turnips. You will want to get some pork and meal and beans enough to last till the crop comes in and then I think that we will have enough grain to last throughout the winter. I will have a house up by the time that you will get here. My boots are very near worn out and I shall need some summer pants and hat. I bought an ax and that you will not have to get. There are slaves owned within three miles of us.
Your Affectionate Son
