Autograph Letter Signed

(1829-96) Brother of Generals Charles and Hugh Ewing. At the age of 19 while his father was Sec. of the Interior, he became a private secretary of President Zachary Taylor. In 1856 Ewing moved to Leavenworth, Kansas, and was a staunch antislavery advocate and had much to do with preventing the admission of Kansas to the Union as a slave state. He was the first chief justice of the Kansas State Supreme Court. In 1862, he recruited and became colonel of the 11th Kansas Cavalry seeing action at Cane Hill and Prairie Grove, Ark. On Mar. 13, 1863, he was promoted to brigadier general, and soon took command of the District of the Border, comprising Kansas and western Missouri. In an effort to suppress the bushwackers who roamed that area, Ewing issued his notorious Order #11, which decreed expulsion of the inhabitants, loyal or disloyal, from the Missouri counties of Jackson, Cass, Vernon, and Bates. During Gen. Sterling Price's famous Missouri Raid in 1864, Ewing distinguished himself at the battle of Pilot Knob.

Autograph Letter Signed: 7 1/2 x 9 1/2, in ink.

Leavenworth, Kansas, Dec. 17, 1859

Dear Henry,

I want my horse taken to the farm and wintered. I have also a cow which yet gives some milk & a calf about 8 months old which I would also send to the farm if they could be taken there without any considerable expense. The cow & calf I can probably sell here if it will not be convenient to have her taken out to the farm.

Please arrange to take the horse out. You might throw a saddle & bridle into some wagon coming in here & come in yourself, or get someone else to come in & ride the horse out. Do not delay making some arrangement in the matter and if it will not cart much arrange also to take the cow & calf out. All pretty well here & at home.

Yours truly,
Thomas Ewing, Jr.

[to] H. Clark, Esq.

Light age toning and wear. Some very minor paper loss at the edges and a couple of small pieces of old tape on the reverse.
