Item Description
  Letter, C. [Robinson] to My Dear S [Sara Robinson]
Author: Robinson, Charles
Date: January 20, 1859

Mostly personal, this brief letter from Washington to Sara R. in Lawrence announces Charles Robinson's impending departure from the nation's capital city and his intention to provide his wife with adequate domestic service in the future. But Robinson also mentions "our railroad bill" and the long awaited "Indian Commissioners decision probably on the float this week."
