4 pp, 5 x 8, Fannie Burkett, Union, September 1862, writes to her mother, with a summation of family members, “…Barkett is looking the best you ever saw him. He has got whiskers shaved off…He has got a great chance…All he has to do is oversee 19 boys in the paint-room. He says they are very kind to him. He has to lock them up in their cells three times a day. He is very much confined…Oscar Hills…heard from him he was to the grizzly bear house. Said the Indians were killing off the white people as fast as possible…”
Folds, toning. A fine lot of 19th century Native American Americana.
