Reeder at the Shawnee Indian Mission. Holliday hoped to make the growing Topeka the capital of Kansas Territory. In Lawrence, a hotel keeper had died and George W.

Holliday described his financial investments and requested money for his trip to Meadville, more urgent as the birth of their first child approached.
