Item Description
  Letter, Tho. Ewing Jr to Dear Parrott [Marcus J. Parrott]
Author: Ewing, Jr., Thomas , 1829-1896
Date: September 27, 1860

In late September 1860, Ewing wrote Marcus J. Parrott, the territory's delegate to Congress (Washington, D.C.) regarding prospective railroad legislation. Ewing thought it was time Parrott made himself "heard on this momentous question"--specifically, the focus was then on the "Vandiver bill" in Congress and the influence the Topeka (Railroad) Convention might have on congressional action.
