Item Description
  Letter, C. K. Holliday to Dear Mary [Holliday]
Author: Holliday, Cyrus Kurtz, 1826-1900
Date: July 14, 1859

Cyrus K. Holliday wrote from the Wyandotte Convention to his wife, Mary Holliday, in Meadville, Pennsylvania. His efforts to ensure that Topeka would be the capital of Kansas Territory had set back his personal political career (territorially and nationally, that is; he had recently been elected mayor of Topeka). Cyrus anxiously awaited the return of Mary and their children, Lillie and newborn Charles.
