In this seven-page handwritten letter, in addition to an envelope, to P.M. Young, Josephine describes the Texas landscape in great detail, even explaining how much corn and flour cost. She is grateful for the equitable society available to her in such foreign territory, but expresses concern about Indian raids and hope that they will be put down militarily.
