I am enclosing herewith copies of three letters, - two from Theresa Gauss to her brother Eugene in St. Charles, respectively 1845[1] and 1850[2], and one from C. F. G. to his son Eugene, dated 1846[3]. Of course to me they are interesting, and I should think they would have some value for your purpose because of the human and domestic side pictured in them; also because of the jubilee celebration described in the 1850 letter.

I have your recent letter and note you will let me have your summer address, which I shall need in order to send you additional material. As soon as I can will prepare a brief sketch of Eugene Gauss, including list of his descendants.

I do not understand why you have not heard from Cousin William Gauss[4] of Colorado Springs. He has always been much interested in C. F. Gauss. We have heard indirectly in recent months of illness in his family, his wife having had an operation I think. However I shall write to him soon. His cousin, and my uncle, Robert Gauss, was a bachelor and for many years an editorial writer on a Denver paper. At his death in 1913, I think he left some things to Cousin Will.

In haste A. D. G.
