Item Description
  Letter, Theodore [Hyatt] to Dear Brother [Thaddeus Hyatt]
Author: Hyatt, Theodore
Date: September 4, 1860

This letter was written by Theodore Hyatt of New York to his brother Thaddeus Hyatt, president of the National Kansas Committee. Theodore rather vehemently berated his brother for his business dealings in Kansas--Theodore had negative experiences with investors and was not willing to lay himself on the line again. He also wrote that he "will not invest another dime in that miserable, God-forsaken country" called Kansas Territory. The rest of the letter discusses bank accounts and financial matters, in addition to a brief mention of a horse that Theodore purchased from S.C. Pomeroy.
