LETTER STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY ON GRAVE REMOVAL - March 23, 1923

Hayward, Wisconsin

Dear Mr. Craige,

  I am sorry to learn that my recent letter to you re the Indian burial did not reach you. I am grateful to Father Gordon for mentioning the matter to you as I have been wondering why no reply to my letter.

  It occurred to me when I first learned of the removal of these graves that it might be of interest for someone to be present when they are removed. I know little or nothing of the age of this cemetery, or whether a trip to the vicinity would really be worthwhile. Perhaps you can advise me on that point. I had no idea that the removal would be undertaken as soon as this. The land here at Madison is under a heavy blanket of snow.

  The cemetery, is, I understand located at Post on the Chippewa River. Just how does one get to that locality? From what point does one best reach it? It will depend somewhat on our work here whether I can come or not.

  I shall be please to hear from you again.

Gratefully yours,
Charles E. Brown
