Letter from William Wingate Sewall to S. Y. Sewall

Description:

The weather is cold and the snow is over a foot deep. William Wingate Sewall isn't sure how the cattle can survive in such an environment. He accompanied a group, including James Watts a "genuine specimen of a frontier man," to a Native American village. Watts was with General Custer the day before the Battle of the Little Bighorn and claims to have been shot seven times and hit with arrows five times. They bought several moccasins, buckskins, and a buffalo robe. Sewall's long hair seemed to interest the Native Americans and they even braided his hair. There are opportunities in Dakota Territory but he still believes that Maine has better living conditions and hopes to return soon.
