and then started for St. Louis, took with me twelve wagons of Mr. [Lucien]
Maxwell for the purpose of bringing out goods for him. Arrived at Kansas May
1. I proceeded to St Louis..."

June 1851 "Kit" CARSON, with 12 goods-filled wagons (Lucien Maxwell's), left
Kansas, Mo., early in June, for Santa Fe. The company consisted of CARSON, his
daughter, Adaline, his niece, Susan (wife of Jesse Nelson), and 15
employees--Jesse Nelson, a French-Canadian, and 13 Mexicans.
