L. W. Roundy letter

L. W. Roundy letter

Dates: 1873

Photocopy of a typescript. Letter to Brigham Young written March 7, 1873, from Kanarrah, Utah. Report to Brigham Young on possibilities of establishing Mormon colonies in northeastern Arizona. Describes in some detail the land, the quality of the water and the distance between watering holes, prospects for getting along with the Indians, timber, and the outlook for farming and grazing. Recommends against sending down any permanent settlers since there would not be enough water or arable land to sustain a community of any size.
