Iowa as Frontier State

Pennsylvania Boys Think it a Stamping Ground for Cowboys

Bearing a two cent stamp in one corner, the following enclosure of a letter directed to the Fort Dodge Post Master was received at the post office this morning:

Aspinwall, Pennsylvania
October 23, 1906

Post Master, Fort Dodge, Iowa:

Dear Sir – I would like to ask you to send me the names of some of the ranchers and ranchmen of Iowa that employ cowboys. A friend of mine and I have decided to go west to Iowa providing we can get work as cowboys.

Hoping you will oblige me by sending me a few names, I remain,

Very truly yours,

J.E. Snyder
Aspinwall, Pennsylvania.
