Summary: Two letters (Sept. 27, 1835, Fort Pierre, S.D.; Mar. 20, 1834, Fort Union, N.D.) addressed to Pratte, Chouteau & Co. in St. Louis and to "Baron de Braunsberg." The first, written on a trip up the Missouri to an unspecified destination, requests good news and newspapers. The second, to the Prince of Wied Neuwied, who was then engaged in a two-year natural science expedition to the American West, concerns McKenzie's failure to procure a specimen of "Le Gros Corne" and arrangements to escort the traveler down the Missouri.
