Item Description
  Letter, Tho. Ewing Jr to Dear Sir [J. M. Winchell]
Author: Ewing, Jr., Thomas , 1829-1896
Date: April 13, 1859

This letter from Ewing in Leavenworth to James M. Winchell at "Wyandott" addressed a question regarding real estate in the latter's city and the upcoming Osawatomie convention for the founding of the Republican Party in Kansas. Ewing believed the "opposition" would "have no difficulty in carrying the county: but if the party is badly managed at Osawattomie [sic], & at subsequent conventions, our county is surely gone and probably the Territory."
