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. 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."
