St. Paul, Minnesota resident; surveyor and draftsman.
Autograph letter signed written in response to recipient's request for information regarding the whereabouts of family member Christopher. Hill describes his partnership in a land claim with "Chris" on farmland in Red Wing, Minnesota, between November 1855 and September 1856, and Chris's relocation to Superior, Wisconsin, where he was hired as a member of the surveying party of the northern section of the St. Croix and Lake Superior Railroad. Hill briefly describes his own position as a clerk and draftsman; his unmarried status; and his agreement with the recipient that a visit to the West would be interesting to him. Hill provides Chris's address in a postscript. The letterhead contains a printed woodcut view of "St. Anthony, Minnesota, [now part of Minneapolis] on the Mississippi."
