  Letter, C. K. Holliday to My Dear Wife [Mary Holliday]
Author: Holliday, Cyrus Kurtz, 1826-1900
Date: September 10, 1855

Cyrus K. Holliday wrote from Topeka, Kansas Territory to his wife, Mary Holliday, in Meadville, Pennsylvania, in good health, though others in Topeka were ill. He wanted Mary to join him, but when and with whom were undecided. He foresaw accepting the editorship of The Kansas Freeman, founded by Edward C. K. Garvey, and acquiring a farm.
