Daniel Mulford Valentine Diary
Authors: Valentine, Daniel Mulford, 1830-1907
Date: January 01, 1859-December 31, 1859
Daniel Mulford Valentine, a 28-year-old lawyer and surveyor, moved to Leavenworth, Kansas Territory, from Fontanelle, Iowa, in mid 1859. Although many of Valentine's daily entries simply record the weather and/or the fact that he spent the day "loafing" or "reading," the diary also details the daily routines of a frontier lawyer and includes a few extraordinary observations on the political happenings of the day. Valentine recorded information about Kansas elections and local politics, and he offered assessments of many of the territory's leaders. Of most interest, however, are of his impressions of Abraham Lincoln, the Illinois lawyer and politician, who visited Leavenworth in early December 1859 to deliver the last two speeches of his brief Kansas tour. In later years, Daniel M. Valentine became a well-known Kansas jurist, ultimately serving for twenty-fours years on the Kansas Supreme Court.
