One of the industries in Mississippi both pre- and post-statehood was trapping and trading of animal pelts. This letter, written from one trapper-trader to another, reports that business is slow and the last round of pelts has not yet sold. This item was included in the Scrawl and Order exhibit, http://lib.msstate.edu/exhibits/past/.
