[Letter from David Osterhout to Orlando Osterhout, July 29, 1860]

Description: Letter from David Osterhout to his brother, Orlando Osterhout, discussing his family. His children had gotten well after having the measles and he said they were doing well after moving to Texas. The hot weather was making it difficult for David to work and he wished he had money to buy cattle and sheep to lighten his work load. He hoped his letter found Orlando well and wanted to hear from him soon.
