Item Description
  Letter, W. [William] A. Phillips to S. [Samuel] N. Wood
Author: Phillips, William A. (William Addison), 1824-1893
Date: January 5, 1860

This letter from W. A. Phillips, Salina, to S. N. Wood, then serving in the territorial legislature, which had adjourned to Lawrence the previous day, expressed concern with regard to several local issues. He was especially troubled by the prospects of a renewed effort on the part of Junction City men "to steal a portion of Dickinson county." The boundary lines of both Saline and Dickinson counties should be left as they were, according to Phillips, who insisted the affected population agreed with him.
