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."
