Oregon Territory Letter

Fort Vancouver
Oregon Territory, Nov. 9th, 1849

We have been in Winter Quarters about a month. The company Officers all live in a long one story log house built by ourselves. . . . Our accommodations are rude enough, but still they still afford us a good protection against the winter rains which have already commenced to pour upon us.
