Title

Letter from William Clark to Edmund Clark, 27 January 1809

Description

William Clark writes to his brother Edmund Clark from St. Louis, Missouri, reporting that he purchased a house and lot in the center of town. He reports that the weather has been very cold and the young people are enjoying skating and sleighing. He notes that they haven't received mail in two months, having instead to send their mail by express to Vincennes for forwarding, which is expensive.
