Item Description
  Letter, Tho. Ewing Jr to My dear Sir [Hon. John Sherman]
Author: Ewing, Jr., Thomas , 1829-1896
Date: December 16, 1859

Ewing wrote Republican Congressman John Sherman in Washington, D.C., to implore him not to support the appointment of William Montgomery (D., Pa.) to the Committee on Public Lands. The Pennsylvania congressman was heavily invested in Atchison and could be expected to continue to support an inequitable Public Land bill.
