Item Description
  Circular, The Lawrence Landing
Author: No authors specified.
Date: c. 1857

This circular advertised that the Lawrence landing was in Delaware City, Kansas Territory. Delaware City lay on the Missouri River and it was closer to Lawrence than either Leavenworth or Quindaro; therefore, the most convenient way to ship goods over the river route would be to have them land at Delaware City. Delaware City had recently come into the hands of free state settlers, who wrote this circular to improve the town and to encourage emigration.
