Boone writes in full, misspellings uncorrected:To the Worshiped Cort of the District of St. Charls gentelmen it is imposable for me to Recalect the time the Difinent Sumenses Was given But Luckely the two first Sumensis that Was givin When Crump Warrented Hayes hapen to be Safe Which Brought the Date to my memerry However I Can ashure the Corte that the Withen Bill Is Just and ought to Be paid I am gentelmen your Most obedent omble Sarvint Daniel Boone. Boone traveled the Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap and the Allegheny Mountains and built three settlements along the way. He became a legend in his own lifetime, especially after an account of his adventures was published in 1784. Following the Revolutionary War, Boone worked as a surveyor and merchant, but fell deeply in debt through failed Kentucky land speculation. Frustrated with the legal problems resulting from his land claims, in 1799 Boone emigrated to St. Charles County in Missouri (then part of Spanish Louisiana) where he spent the last two decades of his life. $10,000 - $15,000
