I've also transcribed a few of Gideon's letters and papers, and electronic copies are available from me. As far as I know, none of these have been published. Included are letters to or from Franklin Steele, Gov. Ramsey, Thomas Williamson, an account of Joseph Renville, and private comments about the Rev. Frederick Stanley.
