In it he mentions having completed building a house. According to my father, William was quite enterprising and worked around or owned a saw-mill. Also, as I recall, he lost a hand while in that work. It was said also that at the time of the accident he sat down at the side of the road and had the doctor take care of the wound then and there and without deadening the pain. that is hard to believe. But that is what my father said. In one letter it is evident that he raised pure bred Polan-China hogs. In another letter is was said that he took 19 premiums at the fair..."
