Item Description
  Letter, Tho. Ewing Jr to Gentlemen [J. B. Abbott, et al]
Author: Ewing, Jr., Thomas , 1829-1896
Date: October 24, 1859

In response to an October 17 letter from "the Seward Club of Lawrence," Ewing said that he was not prepared "to say whether or no" he intended to support James H. Lane for the U.S. Senate. This was a decision best left to the first legislature, which he hoped would contain "our best men," chosen "without regard to their preferences for United States Senators."
