Letter, Henry Woods to Col [Cyrus K.] Holliday
Authors: Woods, Henry
Date: October 2, 1856
Henry Woods, member of the Township Meetings and Speakers committee of the Fremont Club, asked Cyrus K. Holliday, founder of Topeka, Kansas Territory, give an address that evening in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Holliday had returned to his home state to speak on behalf of Republican presidential nominee John Charles Fremont, who supported the free state cause. Woods' brief letter was written on the back of a printed list of subcommittees of the Fremont County Executive Committee. Evidentially, Woods had enclosed with the letter a note from G. E. Appleton of Birmingham, which requested that Holliday speak there the following day.

Letter, C. K. Holliday to Dear Wife [Mary Holliday]
Authors: Holliday, Cyrus Kurtz, 1826-1900
Date: October 17, 1856
Three days after the Pennsylvania state election, Cyrus K. Holliday wrote from Monongahela House, a hotel in Pittsburgh, PA to his wife, Mary Holliday, in Meadville. Results were unofficial, and Cyrus hoped that John C. Fremont, republican presidential candidate, had won at least by a slim majority, if not by the expected large margin. Concerned about the November 4th national election, Cyrus anticipated fraud in Kansas Territory and prayed that the people would do right. He mentioned counties he had spoken in; his next stop, Philadelphia; and his planned return to counties near Meadville.

Cyrus K. Holliday wrote from Monongahela House in Pittsburgh, PA to his wife, Mary Holliday, in Meadville. John C. Fremont had lost the state election, and Cyrus hoped to bolster support by speaking in the counties along the way to Philadelphia. Cyrus had met Judge Church D. A. Finney and J. W. Farrelly from northwestern PA. Cyrus decided that the Holliday family would not go to Kansas Territory that fall. He prophesied civil war.
