Item Description
  Letter, I. T. Goodnow to My Dear Brother [William Goodnow]
Author: Goodnow, Isaac T., 1814-1894
Date: October 10, 1855

Isaac Goodnow wrote from Shannon, Kansas Territory, to his brother William in New England. Having recently arrived in the Territory, Goodnow reported that work on his homestead was still in progress, delayed a bit by the illness of both himself and his wife, Ellen. However, he had recovered enough to ride over to Juniatta to vote in several elections: one for Governor Reeder for delegate to Congress, another for delegates to a State Constitutional Convention.
