In this letter to his brother, Milo, Frank Walker wrote that he had preempted land in Linn County, Kansas Territory, in Section 25 of Township 21S, Range 22E. He had 80 acres he thought were worth a total of $1000, and he intended "to engage in a little speculation that I will make 1000 more." He suggested that, if Milo or their sisters could send $150, he could buy 80 acres for them, as well. Walker was writing from Mound City, Kansas Territory.
