Item Description
  Letter, John James Ingalls to Dear Father [Elias T. Ingalls]
Author: Ingalls, John James
Date: February 11, 1859

In this brief letter from the Senate Chamber, Lawrence, Kansas, February 11, 1859, Ingalls writes about the bill abolishing slavery in Kansas Territory; it was passed too late to give the legislature a chance to override an almost certain veto by Governor Medary. The bill only passed after a "spirited and angry debate."
