William L. Blair was issued this certificate for one share of stock in the Lecompton Town Company on July 10, 1856, signed by the company's secretary, Samuel J. Jones, notorious sheriff of Douglas County. The certificate was apparently transferred at some point to J. A. Halderman.

Letter, O. H. Browne to J. A. Halderman
Authors: Browne, O. H.
Date: February 25, 1859
This letter, written by O. H. Browne from Ridgeway, Shawnee County, was a call to action. Browne was convinced that he and Halderman and others were being "swindled" out of their shares in the Lecompton Town Company, and that "little Bob [Robert] Stevens, law partner of Gov. Shannon, is the mischief making monkey that has caused all this difficulty." Although Halderman was apparently inclined to let this matter go, Browne wanted to file a law suit, and if that didn't work he was "ready to join any company that may be organized and deal out justice to the Lecompton Town Company according to the rules of equity as recognized and administered by Judge Lynch."
