Letter From Hawk's Peak - September 15, 1885

A collection of letters has been unearthed from the historic Hawk's Peak ranch by the descendants of Ethan and Brenna Gallagher, though it is uncertain when the letters sent to Scotland were returned to Montana. These letters give us greater insight into the lives of all the Gallaghers during the 1880s. For preservation purposes, the letters have been transcribed from their original form.

If you have not yet been acquainted with the Gallagher family and Briarwood, some letters may contain what modern folk refer to as "spoilers."
