ALS: "Uncle Will", 1p, 8½x11. Knoxville, Iowa, no year August 12. To Roy [Myers], foreman of E Ranch, Isherwood, Wyoming. In full: "You have not sent me the total number of all the cattle - & where they are - Say how would it do to let the calves stay with their mothers till I come then will I will be with you when we move them? Give the Young Ladies gentle horses - to drive & ride - dont let them get hurt - take good care of them - If they make a trip up the river you go with them for I want you to learn the country & see if any of your cattle are up that way - feed their horses good - I guess Davis My old guide who goes with me every winter will be there to help you." "Young Ladies" probably refer to Buffalo Bill's press agent Bess Isbell and the daughter of John T. Martin of the Cheyenne Carriage and Burro Company who were to visit the E Ranch. William Frederick Cody (1846-1917) was a rider for the Pony Express in 1860, a scout for the Kansas Cavalry against the Indians (1863) and served in the U.S. Army in the Civil War (1863-1865). From 1867-1868, he furnished buffalo meat for the Union Pacific Railroad construction crews, earning his nickname, "Buffalo Bill". Cody was a scout for the 5th U.S. Cavalry from 1868-1872 and in 1876. From 1872-1883, he was on stage as an actor at first in E.Z.C. Judson's play, Scouts of the Plains. He organized Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show in 1883 and toured the United States and Europe successfully for over 30 years. Fine condition. With two sheets of Cody's blank stationery and a blank Cody, Wyoming hotel envelope. Four items.
