1851, Feb. 20. E.D. Seward, Lake Mills, to Rev. Martin Dudley, Ridgebury, Connecticut. His congregation also building a meeting house. Plan 30 by 4O foot church. Sharing school house with other denominations very unpleasant. Mentions Methodists, Wesleyans, Baptists, Episcopalians, Campbellites, and Swedenborgians.

L. Mills, Wis. Aug [2] 1851 WI.Letters2ee.Lette02

1851, Aug. [Postmarked Aug. 18.] E.D. Seward, Lake Mills, to Rev. M[artin] Dudley, Ridgebury, Connecticut. Tells of the day to day tasks and other annoyances. Writes enviously, "You live where the ruts are worn deep and the Ark goes along in the road without continual attention." Bought a horse and wagon for $l25. Crops bad - especially wheat. Is thinking of leaving the territory but has no mature plans. Nothing remarkable has happened - except a fire which destroyed a [saleratus?] factory. Attended Christian Anti-slavery Convention at Chicago in July. Briefly describes the anti-slavery meeting and some of the people he saw. A.L.S. 3pp.
