With "Kansas, MO" manuscript postmark and 10 cent rate. Bissonette says he found the carts and wagons in poor condition, and has lost two mules and a horse. He says if the mules are found, Sarpy can keep them if he credits him. Bissonette was born in 1818, so this is an extraordinarily early letter from him. Little is known of him from this time, and this may well have been his first trip west. He later worked for Sibille & Adams at Fort Platte. At this point, Westport had become a setting-off point for the West, and began to compete with nearby Independence. (Image) Est. $300-400
