Mona-Elmdale news Letters provide glimpse into 19th century BISMARCK- The latest edition of North Dakota History: Journal of the Northern Plains provides glimpses into the landscapes - both internal and external- of North Dako- ta's past. A collection of letters written more than a century ago and now preserved in the State Archives at the North Dakota Heritage Cen- ter allows an intimate look inside a 19th cen- tury marriage. A study of the landscape of the Square Butte's region on the Missouri River shows how views of these landmarks have been filtered through the sensibilities of artists beginning almost 200 years ago. North Dakota History is the journal pub- lished since 1926 by the state's history agency, the State Historical Society of North Dakota. In this double issue of North Dakota Histo- ry, Volume 75. 1 & 2, Dr. Barbara Handy- Marchello explores the letters John C. Boren, a Menken, North Dakota farmer, sent to his wife, M.J. Boren, who was visiting family in Illinois in 1896. When Dr. Handy-Marchello began working with the letters, the story sur- rounding them, as well as what happened to the family later, was unknown. Through her meticulous research and interpretation of the letters a delightful glimpse of a 19th Cen- tury marriage, and a wider view of the com- munity in which this couple lived, has come to light. "Lovesickness is the Worst Sickness" docu- ments both the letters themselves and the in- formation Handy-Marchello found in the course of her research. John Boren express- es his loneliness and longing for his wife's presence, relays the community gossip occa- sioned by a spouse too long from home, and complains about the hardships caused by the absence of his wife's labor. Through these let- ters we can perceive how Boren viewed his relationship with his wife and his communi- ty- the mental landscape and landmarks of his life. Handy-Marchello, associate professor of history emerita at the University of North Dakota, is the author of Womenof the North- ern Plains, Gender and Settlement on the Homestead Frontier 1870-1930, which won the Caroline Bancroft Prize for the best book in Western History in 2006. She has also written several previous articles for North Dakota History. Dr. Handy-Marchello volunteers ex- tensively with the State Historical Society in a number of capacities, including work on the recent award-winning high school text- book which uses articles from North Dakota History, entitled North Dakota History: Read- ings about the Northern Plains State. She al- so writes educational resources for the State Historical Society of North Dakota's Web site using primary documents from the State Archives. ,'The Square Buttes in Art," by W. Ray- mond Wood, professor emeritus of anthro- pology at the University of Missouri-Colum- bia, explores five historic images of the Square Buttes north of Mandan, N.D.
