Scope and Contents
The first few letters are from the Williams' daughter, who was staying with an aunt in Garnett, Kansas to learn household management and to go to school. Letters from J. F. Williams to his wife are written on two trips, the first with some Arapahos to Topeka, Kansas to testify in court concerning a murder case, and the second with representative Arapahos to Washington, D.C. to meet U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant. The remaining letters are addressed to Sallie Williams from other relatives and discuss family affairs, household management, the Chicago World's Fair, and general conditions of the times.
