Boldly penned ALS signed “Z. Taylor,” one page both sides, 7.75 x 9.75, July 13, 1828. Letter to Captain J. C. Culbertson in St. Louis, written while commanding Fort Snelling in the Michigan Territory. In part: "The company dept. having a large supply of provisions on hand at this place & being instructed by the head of this dept. to dispose of any part of it at fixed prices I have, in consequence of failing to get from Cincinnati where I had ordered it to be purchased for the use of my plantation, taken from him Twenty bls of pork, which I must trouble you to ship…by the first steam boat destined for N. Orleans. We have nothing new at this place, everything is going on pretty well & I hope will continue to do so." In fine condition.
