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. Medora, Dakota
Territory, is "very dead." A. T. Packard lost everything in a fire
and moved back east. The saloon also burnt down and Joseph A.
Ferris's store had a close call. 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."

The small town of Medora, North Dakota, once had aspirations of
"becoming the metropolis of the western plains." The first
settlement in the area was Little Missouri, a former army
cantonment that had been sold to the public. The Marquis de Mores
founded Medora and eventually built a packing plant and hotel.
