Letter, John N. Dyer to Gov. A. H. Reeder

Date: November 7, 1854
John N. Dyer, Pawnee, KT, wrote Reeder to say that the Pawnee Town Association, which had been formed in November 1854 and of which Dyer was secretary, had voted to admit the governor "as a member with equal rights, and responsibilities, as the original members." The letter was written on the 7th about a meeting on the 6th of November; perhaps this was the association's first meeting, since they reportedly organized sometime in November.
