Interesting late Indian War letter from a member of the famous 7th U.S. Cavalry to his friend in Michigan. This letter written Oct. 15, 1897, from Fort Huchuca, Arizona Territory, is complete with its original envelope and stamp. The writer, Walter Willoughby, details his recent experiences on a mission into Mexico in pursuit of renegade Apaches who had attacked a customs house killing seven people. Evidently, the forty day mission was not too successful netting only "two papooses and ponies and camp outfit." Willoughby goes on to note "I don`t like the looks of Colorado, New Mexico, nor Arizona and don`t think anybody that has any sense would live in such miserable states." Many other interesting tidbits as well. The two page letter is in very nice condition, and though written in pencil, is quite legible. Neat letter for Old West or Indian War collector!
