Letter written by James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok, from someplace in Kansas, to Polly Butler Hickok, Troy Grove, Illinois. He complains that he has received few letters from her. Hickok will not tell his mother what he is doing in Kansas, but he offers to tell her later. He writes that the "excitement" is pretty much over, and he has seen some sights that would make one sick.
