About this Item

4to, 43 lines, approx. 330 words; previous folds, else fine, and with the original mailing envelope bearing an 1854 St. Paul postmark. Homes warns that St. Paul is no place to live: "I shall not give them much encouragement if they come here [and] must come on their own responsibilities. I know Jonas would not like it here and would soon get homesick and as it costs considerable to get here. I don't wish to be responsible for the uncertainty of their liking the country. I would not stay here were it not for making money. This country has many failings which are great detriments to it. Timber is very scarce and in some parts the soil is not good. A large portion of the land about this place is land that won't wear long. I think the best portion of this country is on Lake Superior. Some from this place are moving there now.".
