Item Description
  Letter, J. F. Newton to S. N. Wood
Author: Newton, J. F.
Date: October 13, 1859

In this letter from Emporia, Newton complimented a Wood article on Emporia that gave "hell" to the local Republicans and encouraged Wood to do it again in the next issue of his newspaper. Factionalism was dividing the local party, and Newton mentioned several locals, such as [Charles V.] Eskridge, by name. "O yes a majority of the Republican central committee and Democrats hurrah for old Breckinridge this shows what shrewd Republicans we have give them 'hell' in your next."
