Description: Handwritten letterFrom: James R.M. Bryant, Bloomington, February 6, 1858To: George Winter, LafayetteALS, 2 p. (one sheet)
Discussion of some money Bryant owes G.W. and the riskiness of sending money by mail. Regarding some prominent figures connected with the Pottawattamis: Sin-a-ga-wa (a great orator), Father Petit (the circumstances of his death, the hardships of the emigration march), Pawk-shuk or young Aub-be-naub-be (a "savage" who killed his own father and wounded his wife), Pash-po (a great dandy). Some stories of his acquaintance with these Indians, expecially on the emigration. Has no time to deal with G.W.'s Indian sketches at that point.
