Item Description
  Letter, Samuel C. [Smith] to "Dear Dr." [C. Robinson]
Author: Smith, Samuel C.
Date: December 7, 1858

In this letter, also from Lawrence, Smith went into some detail about developments with respect to the Delaware lands, apparently connected to a railroad promotion scheme. The Indians "know that [Robert S.] Stevens is connected with the R. R. enterprise and this action of his . . . Has excited their mistrust and caused obstacles to rise in the way of such a treaty as you [Robinson] desire."
