Item Description
  Letter, Tho. Ewing Jr to Dear Father [Thomas Ewing Sr.]
Author: Ewing, Jr., Thomas , 1829-1896
Date: February 2, 1860

In a lengthy letter to his father back in Lancaster, Ohio, Thomas Ewing, Jr., provided some observations and analysis of the Kansas political scene, especially as it pertained to the forthcoming election of U.S. senators. The counties north of the Kansas River would likely get either Marcus J. Parrott or Samuel C. Pomeroy, and the latter worried Ewing primarily because he was an Atchison promoter.
