James Mead to his father

James Mead to his father
Creator: Mead, James R. (James Richard), b. 1836
Date: January 11, 1861
In this letter, James R. Mead writes to his father concerning his buffalo hunting and trading. He has just returned from a trading trip. He does not know what to do with all of the robes, so he plans to send them to his father. He includes some advice about the best way to care for and sell these robes. He is hoping to come home to Davenport, Iowa, for a visit in the spring, but only if the fur prices were on the rise. In a few days he is heading north to get more furs. These typed copies of the James R. Mead's letters were donated to the Kansas State Historical Society by Mr. Mead's family in 1940 when the originals were still owned by the family. The originals are now held by Wichita State University.


Julia Ann Stinson correspondence

Julia Ann Stinson correspondence
Creator: Stinson, Julia Ann Beauchemin, 1834-1925
Date: 1895-1914
Statements and recollections of Julia Ann Stinson, wife of Thomas Nesbit Stinson. Julia was born in 1834 at the Shawnee Methodist Indian Mission where she was raised and educated. It was there that she met Thomas Stinson and married him in 1850. A photograph taken on her wedding day is believed to be the first photographic portrait taken west of the Missouri River. Her husband was adopted into the tribe and the couple received a land grant of about 800 acres from a treaty between the U.S. government and the Shawnee Indians. The Stinson's made their home on the land they acquired through the Shawnee settlement. Julia Stinson claimed a relationship to the Shawnee warrior Tecumseh. Shawnee Indians supposedly kidnapped her grandfather who married a cousin of Tecumseh. This is how the future town earned its name. The couple built a home there, established a profitable trading post and ran a post office. Included in these documents are reminiscences of encounters with Andrew Reeder, Chief Abram Burnett, and John C. Fremont.

William Clark to John H. Eaton

William Clark to John H. Eaton
Creator: Clark, William, 1770-1838
Date: September 22, 1830
In this letter, Superintendent of Indian Affairs William Clark (of Lewis and Clark fame) informed his superior, Secretary of War John Eaton, of the problems associated with traders' selling of liquor to the Indians relocated in Kansas. Hard liquors such as whiskey were permitted in Indian country for the use of white traders and boatmen; however, apparently this privilege had been abused and Clark feared the effect that alcohol consumption would have on the Indian tribes in the territory.
