One letter, 1829 (as published in a newspaper in 1881), from Nicholas County, Kan., describes Hart’s studies; one, 1884, from Florence, Italy, recounts his travels and inquires about exhibiting his statues; and an undated fragment discusses a niece-in-law who is trading on Joel Hart’s reputation by using his surname.
