Letter from William Wingate Sewall to S. Y. Sewall

Description:

William Wingate Sewall participated in a cattle roundup that lasted seventeen days and covered 500 miles. He describes the route they took and the country they traveled through. Sewall had a good time and enjoyed the trip but he wouldn't spend his life in Dakota Territory even if he could own the whole territory. The "poor settlers" in Dakota live very roughly and he thinks that when they can vote they will "cook" the cattle men until the territory is left to the "small fellows."

Letter from William Wingate Sewall to S. Y. Sewall

Description:

The weather has been very changeable but there have been some warm days and William Wingate Sewall believes that only a few cows will be lost over the winter. Sewall is unsure if the area is suitable for cattle due to the cold and, with all the cattle being brought in, he fears the grass will run out. He suggests Theodore Roosevelt was misled about the profitability of cattle ranching in Dakota Territory. Sewall hasn't met anyone that is making a profit. Roosevelt will be visiting the ranch soon and Sewall will be happy to see him.

Letter from Howard Eaton to William Wingate Sewall

Description:

The weather has been fair recently but previous "sharp weather" killed many cattle and "everybody is blue as a whetstone." At least the losses should stop the big herds from Texas.

Howard Eaton is glad that William Wingate Sewall is well and he wishes he could join Sewall for some "hunting, fishing, eating apples and drinking cider."
