Utica, Seward County, Nebraska, March 12, 1883

MR. EDITOR: I suppose many of the people of Waynesville and vicinity would like to hear how the emigrant train that left on Tuesday, the 27th, of February last, progressed its way, bound for the great west. I will endeavor to give some of the incidents and mishaps that occurred on the way.
     Between 4 and 5 o'clock P.M. on the 27th, part of our company steamed away from the vast crowed of interested spectators at the depot. They arrived at Machinaw Creek about 7 o'clock. There they were met by the ticket agent of the C.B. & Q. Road, who decided that it would be impossible to ferry women and children across the creek in the dark in a little skiff that would carry only about 6 persons at one time, so they were taken back a mile to the I.B. &W. crossing, and waited there one hour and a half for a train on that road to take them into Peoria. There they had to wait from half past eleven until about five in the morning, for the detached trains of freight and stock that were sent via Decatur and thence over the P.D. & E. into Peoria. By the way, some of the boys of the detached trains imbibed most too freely on leaving, and arriving at Decatur, thought they would change their course, and go to New York instead of going west and grow up with the country. At Peoria we were detained until about 9 A.M. when we pulled out of Peoria with 27 emigrant cars, a coach and a caboose, making 29 in all. Leaving Peoria we progressed slowly; did not reach Burlington, Iowa until 9 P.M. Here we were treated in such a way, that we felt disposed to complain. The understanding between the Company and the Agent for the C.B & Q. Road was that we were to have a special train and a clear track most of the way, but here our train was divided; thus separating some from their friends and families, and causing some little excitement, in the midst of which Robert RANDALL, in stepping from one car to another fell between then, striking his stomach and breast on the edge of the car, but fortunately the cars were not in motion, or it might have been fatal, otherwise he was not seriously hurt. Leaving Burlington at 10 P.M. we arrived at Batavia, about 60 miles. The next morning at 6 o'clock, 8 1/2 miles an hour on a average. Leaving Batavia Thursday morning we rolled on to Iowa, passing some thriving towns such as Tttumwa (sic), Charliton and Creston, arriving at Pacific Junction early on Friday morning. Here we were compelled to leave Mr. S. O. LATERMAN, with his stock, all of which had gotten down in the car, and his $75.00 cow had two or three of her ribs broken. He, however, passed Utica on Monday the 5th, inst., all right. Leaving the junction about noon we soon crossed the Missouri River and entered the state of Nebraska at Plattsmouth. Pushing farther west, we arrived at Lincoln at about 5 o'clock Friday afternoon. Here two cars of our train dropped off, Mr. IVES and FITSPATRICK, We remained here but a few minutes and we were off again.
     We arrived at our destination, Utica, at about 12 P.M. Bidding our friends goodbye, the train pulled out for Aurora, the county seat of Hamilton county, where they were all going to locate. The country through Iowa, what we could see from the train, was mostly rough and hilly; soil thin. In Neb. we followed the Platte River about 30 miles, with high bluffs on the left and the river on the right.
     Leaving the river at Ashland we struck the high prairie table land, then it was one grand view in every direction, with nothing to break the monotonous scenes, except here and there a small farm house. This is doubtless grand country; soil rich and productive. There is much industry and enterprise shown by its sparsely settled inhabitants. There is still room for thousands more, and they are coming in daily.
     We left Utica at 12 o'clock Friday night, our progress was very slow. We arrived at Aurora at 3 o'clock Saturday morning. It took quite a good while to unlead the stock. Stock unloaded, we meandered our way up town, ate a hearty breakfast, after which we felt much refreshed. Breakfast over, we again resumed our work unloading. It was quite an exciting time during the forenoon. Later in the day, the emigrants could be seen winding their way westward towards St. Joe. Our arrival created quite a sensation in this community. The old settlers could be seen standing around with their bands in their pockets thinking of seeking some new homes in the far off Loup county, a country unsought for by Illinois explorers. The newcomers are all settled down, and are ready for spring work as soon as the weather will permit. The weather has been very cool for some time past, with occasional high winds, Most of the emigrants are located within 5 miles of St. Joe, and quite a number are nearer and some are located in town. All seem to be very much pleased with the country. About all the objections any of them have are the small houses. Most all of the houses in this country, as is the case in any new county, are very small and poorly constructed. A few of the emigrants

Letter to Waynesville, Ohio Newspaper continued:

are living in sod houses. The health of the colony at present is very good with one or two exceptions. Daniel LATTERMAN has been suffering from an attack of pneumonia, but at present is convalescent. Cade MORSE is suffering from a lame back, effects of falling out of a "Nebraska" haymow. Cade says that much work doesn't pay. Quite a number of friends met at the residence of John LATTERMANS last Thursday evening; the occasion was an enjoyable one. It was thward the wee small hours of the morning when the mirthful company started home; but all agreed that there was some enjoyment to be had even in the wilds of Nebraska. John EVANS has his shop completed, and at present has more work than he can do. William EKEN, who for some time past has been staying with John EVENS, is now stopping with George GEMBREL. Wm. ESKEW has purchased a fine buggy. I suppose this all has a meaning. Go it "Bill", we wish you success?
     The emigrants to this part at present is very large, the roads being constantly lined with emigrants. Quite a good many are stoppin in this part, while a great many are going still farther west in order to get goverment land. This is one vast prairie as far as the eye can see, dotted here and there with small groves, all of which have been planted by the settlers. We have quite a settlement here, and we think it is very nearly as thickly settled as it is south of Waynesville. This is a grand Country, and is filling up with a good class of people. WLH
