Item Description
  Letter, Sol Miller to Gov. [Charles] Robinson
Author: Miller, Solomon
Date: February 28, 1861

Written less than a month after Kansas became a state, Miller comments on the developing political situation as a carry over from the territorial period, reflecting, for example, on the conflict between the governor and James H. Lane and the selection of U.S. senators for Kansas. Miller had supported Robinson in the past and was now seeking appointment to a particular "Agency," but he refused "sell" his support to anyone for such a position.
