Charles Robinson, Washington, D.C. to William Hutchinson
Authors: Robinson, Charles
Date: December 31, 1858
Robinson speculated about the prospects for financing and building a railroad in the Kansas River valley. He contended that government land grants would be necessary for the successful construction and operation of a railroad. Robinson also defended himself against charges that he was not working hard enough to convince the U.S. Congress to support a railroad in the Kansas River valley.

Letter, Tho. Ewing Jr. to Dear Sir [E. Peabody]
Authors: Ewing, Jr., Thomas , 1829-1896
Date: April 9, 1859
Although Thomas Ewing, Jr., was heavily involved the promotion and development of the Leavenworth, Pawnee and Western Railroad Company from his arrival in K.T., this seems to be one of few letter in the letter press books containing fairly substantial reference to those concerns to this date. Here, Ewing wrote E. Peabody of St. Louis regarding a recent company board meeting there in Leavenworth and plans "to connect with the Hannibal & St Jos: rail road, by the shortest & cheapest route to Bucklin or Easton," bypassing Platte City and Plattesburgh.
