Description: Letter from John Patterson Osterhout to his wife, Junia Roberts Osterhout, discussing his time traveling with his oxen wagon. He and his companion, Jo, have had difficulties keeping the oxen in line and have been searching for the ones that have run off. On the route he has taken, he noticed a lot of cotton making its way to Mexico. He was asking around for the price of a bushel of wheat and because of the missing oxen, he was unable to purchase as much as he had planned. He closed his letter by telling her he would be unable to return home until December.
