Samuel R. Redfield correspondence

 File — Multiple Containers
Identifier: MSS SC 2878
Includes letter to him and his wife, Sally, from their daughter, Orpha M. Everett, in Salt Lake City, dated 28 February 1855. She discusses interference of the federal government in Utah affairs, and defends the Mormon practice of plural marriage. Also includes two letters by Samuel, 12 and 13 June 1858, addressed to John H. Redfield, giving family genealogical data. The 1858 letters appear to be in response to specific questions.
