The first letter (May 9, 1853) was written from Buenos Aires (Argentina) while he was on board the "Jamestown" to his father in St. Anthony (Minnesota), with information on the activities of other family members, his hopes to be in St. Anthony soon, partridge hunting and trips up the Uruguay and San Salvador rivers, his duties as a midshipman, and his salary, food, and other details on his naval career. The second letter (Oct. 15, 1854), written to his cousin Frank, tells of his studies at the U.S. Naval Academy. Also included are two envelops with some family information and a calling card for Lieutenant W. G. Cheever.
