This letter written in 1906, is from August Bondi (1833-1907), Salina attorney-at-law, to his children. In the letter, Bondi opens with discussion about John Brown, who he fought with in the Border War, also known as Bleeding Kansas, and the American Civil War. He continues to write about the 1906 election for the Democratic Party. Bondi then transitions from political discussions to the price of fruit, specifically watermelon, peaches, plums, and apples; and the vegetable garden rotation. Bondi signs the letter "Pa" to his children.

Creator: Bondi, August M. (August Mendel), 1833-1907
