DescriptionHandwritten letter From: George Winter, Jr., Dalles City, Oregon, Nov. 16, 1861 To: "Parents and Sister" [G.W. and family], [Lafayette] ALS, 4 p. (-1 sheet, folded)
Description ContinuedDecided against improving a claim of 100 acres over the winter, as he didn't have the means to do so, and instead has taken a job in Dalles City. If he can get a good job, he will persist with it; otherwise, he will return to the mines. He still does not smoke, drink, or chew tobacco, but he does swear a bit. Has not heard from them since May 7. Since then, the war has broken out. He wonders "what they are going to do with all the niggers, when they whip the South." Surprised that they have become so religious, being baptized and confirmed. Urges them to write; requests news of frinds and relatives, direct future letters to Charles.
