John Rollin Ridge letters to family by John Rollin Ridge( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Three letters from John Rollin Ridge to his cousin, Cherokee leader and Confederate Army brigadier general Stand Watie (1806-1871), and his mother Sarah B.N. Ridge, written from Marysville, California. The first letter to Watie focuses on Ridge's experiences in California - which he calls a "series of bad luck" - and his belief that Major Ridge and John Ridge were "but partially avenged." In his second letter to Watie, Ridge writes that he had expected to make "a great deal of money" from his novel "The Life and Adventures of Joaquin Murieta," but that this had not been the case and that he was hoping to try again with a new edition in the Atlantic States. He also expresses his desire to establish a newspaper devoted to "the affairs of the Indian race" in Arkansas, a venture which he is asking Watie to finance. In the letter to his mother, Ridge writes of his desire to make a living as a writer and says he would not practice law unless "driven to it," and reiterates his desire to establish a newspaper devoted to Indian affairs.

Stand Watie letters by Stand Watie( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Negative photocopies of four letters to Stand Watie. Two of the letters are from Watie's brothers, John A. Watie and Charles E. Watie. John's letter, dated November 10, 1850, was written just after his arrival in Sonora, California, of which he writes "gold is plenty - everywhere in this neighborhood." He also writes of Henry Hickey Burrows joining a "robbing party" at the Colorado River and mentions a Judge Brown. In his letter of August 19, 1856, Charles Watie asks Stand to fund a printing press devoted to Indian affairs that John Rollin Ridge, the son of the Waties' cousin John Ridge, wants to establish in Arkansas. Charles also writes that he plans to quit mining and leave California. The final two letters were written by a Cherokee woman named Barbara Longknife in 1854 and 1857. Longknife writes from Coloma, California, of the sicknesses her family has endured, the difficulty of her daily work, and her belief that "California is not what it was represented."
