Authors: Reeder, Andrew H. (Andrew Horatio), 1807-1864
Date: January 14, 1857
In this letter from Washington, D.C., dated January 14, 1857, Reeder wrote at length of a visit with W. H. Russell of Leavenworth (William H. Russell of Russell, Majors & Waddell) who believed the business climate was improving and that Reeder's lots were safe. Russell advised Reeder not to sell anything until value increased and volunteered to help Reeder reclaim the personal papers he lost during the Sack of Lawrence. Reeder thought Russell's help might be useful, since "Russell is so undoubtedly sound on the goose that he can afford to ask for them."
