Item Description
  Letter, H. H. Ropes to Dear Sir [George Collamore]
Author: Ropes, H.H.
Date: November 12, 1859

H. H. Ropes wrote from Barilyar[?], New England, to George Collamore in Kansas Territory. Ropes inquired after, presumably, a family member, Edward, as he had not heard word from him for a long time. Ropes also commented on the poor reporting of the "Herald of Freedom," owned by George W. Brown, commenting to Collamore that "you have never yet had a decent newspaper out there."
