Abstract:

In this document, Carson formally certifies and signs that Dr. DeWitt C. Peters is his only authorized biographer.

In 1858 Carson's autobiography was transferred to Dr. Peters who had become acquainted with Carson while serving as an army surgeon in the southwest during the mid-1850's. Peters used the manuscript as the basis for his published work, The life and adventures of Kit Carson (New York : Clark, 1858), a greatly embellished version of the autobiography. The contents of the original manuscript remained unpublished until 1926.
