Letter from William Wells to Henry S. Drinker


Library of Congress Manuscript Division


William Wells tells Henry S. Drinker about his successful first season running a hunting business and ranch in Wyoming. He writes that he believes the area will not always be the "game paradise it is now," as more settlers are moving in. Wells invites Drinker and several others to come out to hunt with him, but says that if they want to get a sheep they should be prepared to shoot from a distance. If they come, Wells would meet them by the railroad and head into the good hunting country, which he describes.
