Philanders letter to his uncle:

Otis Holden
Moose River,
Somerset County, Maine

Arborville, July 15, 77

Dear Uncle, I sit down to day to answer your kind letter. We are all well as this leaves us. Hoping this will find you and family enjoying the same blessing. I have not mutch news to write. The wish you exprest to have the record of my family I drawn it off from the record in my bible and is correct which you will find on the accompanying sheat. Now I will ask a small favor of you that is to look and see what condition the graves are in of my two children, and if they want filling or rounding up, do it and oblige a distant friend for it may be that I shall not see them again for life is so uncertain but I intend to visit Maine once more.

Now I will speak of the grasshoppers and the present crop. The hoppers destroyed the corn crop last season and laid their eggs in the ground in sufficient numbers to devour every vestige of green vegetation in the entire west, but having a wet cold spring the eggs rotted in some degree and the birds picked up what hatched out, so they have done us no harm this summer, but we have a prospect of a good crop. The winter rye is allready cut and in the shock so is the barley and wheat will be fit to cut by the 23rd of July. I have 55 acres of wheat, 21 of corn, 10 of oats. The wheat and oat as I walk through them reach to my shoulders and corn is above my head. Now uncle, I do not say this to brag, far from it, I do it to show you how things grow in Nebraska compared with that gravely plain that I so long tried to make a living on. But fools are not all dead yet, so let them work on. I want you to send me 4 lbs of the potato oats this fall. The amount you can send by mail so I can try them hear and I will send you some wheat known hear as grass wheat. It can be sown as fall or spring wheat ut sow it hear in the spring and it ripens the last of July and is a great yielder. Now I would ask if their can be anything realized out of the Mich. place or what condition it stands in in regard to the tax that has accumulated on it. I send you a paper printed in the county. It will give you some idea how the west has grown. I have filled the page and must quit. Give my love to all. Tell Jonas (Holden) I will write to him after harvest. P. M. Colby
