Viewing Oscar F. Perkins: "Law Being at a Discount." (1882)
Oscar F. Perkins, a twenty-five year old lawyer, migrated from Vermont to Minnesota in 1854. He settled in Faribault the next year. In a talk to an old settlers association in 1875, he described his experiences as a lawyer, farmer and preacher in 1854 and 1855. His recollections appeared first in a history of Rice County published in 1882.
