Pierson family correspondence by Pierson family( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This collection contains twenty-three letters written primarily from Schuyler, Buffalo County, Nebraska, but include also three letters from Morrison, Colorado, one from Deadwood, South Dakota, and one from Pendleton, Oregon. Most of the correspondence was written by newlyweds Elmer or Lou (short for Louisa?) Pierson to their relatives in Illinois. The letters are filled with numerous details reflecting daily lives and struggles while making ends meet on the western plains. In January 1894 Lou writes, "...well it seems to me I never can get Elmer's debts paid I come out here & he owes [Geo] Little $150.00 and Mr. VanHoosen over $200.00 and I have got my 2 hands to pay..." Elmer appears to be a very colorful character, who, as he mentions in one letter, "I served ten years in the penitentiary in Nebraska for stealing horses..." (April 4, 1882). His writing reflects at times humor, a quick wit, and a restless ambition to take full advantages of the opportunities promised by the open west
