Wisconsin territorial letters--1838
[unpublished]

P. Fonda Esq. South Port Wisconsin Teritory [sic] April 26, 1838 WI.Letters2s.i0001

1838, Apr. 26. G. P. Post, South Port [Kenosha], to Peter Fonda, Fultonville, New York. "Dear Father." Tells of the scarcity of meat and flour and especially currency most of which comes from Michigan where the banks are in a "reched" condition. The lack of currency retards all enterprise. The government has not yet passed a preemption for settlers on government land. Hopes land will not be ordered for sale before preemption bill is passed. Saw steamboat on way to Chicago yesterday. A.L.S. 2pp.
