Letter, Findley Patterson to John A. Halderman
Authors: Patterson, Findlay
Date: April 4, 1860
Patterson, the land office receiver at Junction City, May 1858 to April 1861, wrote with regard to problems within the Kansas Democratic Party. Recent differences between members over participation in the party's national convention at Charleston, S.C., had been aired in the press, and Patterson thought this unfortunate since "the future prosperity of our country depends upon the success of that party. Democrats should, he contended, not let relatively small policy issues overshadow the fundamental principles they share. Patterson pledged his support for the nominee of the convention, whomever it was, but favored "Judge Douglass [Stephen Douglas] . . .as we have been intimate personal, as well as political friends for several years."

Letter, J. B. Woodward to S. N. Wood
Authors: Woodward, J. B.
Date: December 2, [1860]
From Junction City, Woodward wrote to inform Wood that he (Woodward) was "elated with the idea" that Wood might move his newspaper to Junction City and promised to do all he could to support the paper if the relocation came about. According to Woodward his town needed "a Press just as rabid and saucy as yours" that could effectively counter opposition. Reference was made to a "Geery," apparently H. T. Geery, who switched to the Democratic Party and started a Junction City newspaper. This may have been the Kansas Frontier, which was published by H.N. Short and H.T. Geery at least by the spring of 1861. (Only two extant copies exist; the first is vol. 1, no. 8, May 25, 1861.)
