Item Description
  Letter, Rush Elmore to James Stallworth
Author: Elmore, Rush
Date: January 11, 1858

From Lecompton, Rush Elmore, an associate justice of the territorial supreme court, a leading delegate at the Lecompton Constitutional Convention, and a slave holder, wrote this letter of introduction for Halderman to "hand" the Hon. James A. Stallworth, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Elmore's home state of Alabama. Halderman was apparently making a trip to Washington, D.C., and Elmore asked the Congressman to show him every courtesy. Elmore called his "friend" Halderman "a gentleman of some prominence not only in his county but throughout the Territory," and wrote "You will be able to learn many important & interesting facts in relation to the Territory and its Political parties from him."
