Item Description
  Letter, Silas Armstrong to Dear Sister
Author: Armstrong, Silas
Date: March 1, 1857

Silas Armstrong wrote again to "Sister", this time from Washington, D.C., regarding her dissatisfaction with the purchase Silas had made for her in town shares. Armstrong reassured her that he had treated the investment as if it were his own. He told her that he had tried again to locate her float in the Shawnee lands, but that her uncertainty in all this business made him afraid to continue, for fear that she become angry with him. Armstrong added that he was helping the Seneca and Wyandot delegation with their business, but feared that they too would not accomplish anything.
