Item Description
  Letter draft, unsigned [Hiram Hill] to S.N. Simpson
Author: Simpson, Samuel Newell
Date: January 22, 1857

Hiram Hill wrote from Williamsburgh, Massachusetts, to S.N. Simpson in Kansas Territory. Hill expressed frustration that he was not receiving the information he requested from Simpson about the site and shares he had invested in the new town, most likely Quindaro. Hill suspected he was paying more than other investors per share, which he claimed was unjust since he "was the first one that set that new town in motion".
