J. Augusta (Goodrich) Griffing wrote from Owego, New York, to her husband James in Topeka, Kansas Territory. Ms. Griffing was visiting her family in New York for the first time since she'd moved to Kansas Territory in 1855. She described visiting friends and extended family in the Owego area, attending church, and purchasing items that she planned to take back to Kansas Territory. She wrote Mr. Griffing instructions on how to make pickles from cucumbers that he harvested from their kitchen garden in Kansas Territory.
