Shane's Letter

 

Dear Editor:

 

My name is Stan N. McGroun. I am a farmer, homesteaded here in 1869 when I was 22 years old. I'm 32 now, married and the father of 2. I've gone to school through the eighth grade.

 

Standing Bear and his followers should be kept on reservations so decent people can make a living. I'm an Irish Catholic who works hard on the little land I have. With Indians on reservations I can buy more land and grow more crops.

 

Sincerely,

Stan N. McGroun
