The past week has been very blustery, in fact I suppose March is about the same the world over. Have you not heard from Lawton for some time. Did they chase you out of Baraboo after the photograph expose? what is the feeling in civilization over the death of Crawford? or have they any feeling upon the subject? Yours truly A E Wood" Dated March 4th 1886.
ALS by H.J. McGrath, 4th Cavalry
Item number: 17638978 |
Handwritten letter describes life at Fort Bowie in 1885. "My Dear Albee: You will perhaps be surprised to receive a letter from me, but "accidents will happen in the best 8" I write on a matter of business, but shall first have a word to say about mutual friends. You have undoubtedly seen an account of Hurricans' wedding which occured at Presidio on the 27th ultimy to Miss Minnie Moore, whom you perhaps remember as her father was stationed at San Anton, while you were in Texas. It is said that T. was baptized in the Catholic Church - went to confession and rec'd communion before the marraige ceremony, but as he has not yet returned we do not know the truth of the matter. Don't believe the story about the confession because he was in San Fran only a couple of weeks before the wedding, and it would take at least a couple of mos. to confess what I know of his misdoings during hte past few years. Delang of the 9th Hoof arrived here a few days ago from Huachucca, and reports that they have been "investigating" Wood down there. Wood has been in com'd of H. for some months and some 'nice young men' interested in the good of service has kept a black book on him. the Nice young man made a report to Dept Hdg. lately, and Major Carlton wassent down to investigate. Guess nothing will come of it hope not anyhow. I am crying for files but dont want any on Wood. He is too devilish good a fellow. This is a hell of a post. beaumont is in com'd which relieves it a good deal, but a desert island in the Pacific is in a whirl of excitement compared with Bowie. There are only three †cos. in the garrison with no hunt, no fish. Now about business; it is this Hunter 3rd Cav and I own a ranch about eight miles from here with grass and water for 10,000 head of cattle. We want to sell. Our lowest price is $4800. We will give you 10% on that amount for making the sale for us, and will also give you all you can get out of it over 48. I will tell you honestly that 48 is dirt cheap for the property, and no one could have it for double that amount if we could afford to stock it ourselves. We have water which flows the entire year, and not another drop of living water nearer the post, where of course no cattle can be held. No man can put a head of cattle within a doz mi of our water, and the grass is all white and black gramma. It is unnecessary for me to say anything to you about Ariz. as a cattle country you know as well as I do that there is no better in the world. We have spent $600 in the construction of a dam to furnish reservoir, and, in case we can not see within two or three months will spend $1000 more in piping the water to where it can be utilized. The latter expenditure is necessary before the water is avilable for cattle purposes. Knowing that you knowest about the country a good deal and have a long acquantance with business men. I write you the above, hoping you will find it convenient to take hold of the matter. Yours truly, H.J. McGrath." Included in the lot is a biographical sketch of McGrath.
