  Letter, C. E. Blood to Dear Bro. [Isaac] Goodnow
Author: Blood, C.E.
Date: June 20, 1859

C. E. Blood wrote from Manhattan, Kansas Territory, to Isaac Goodnow, imparting that the Vivaldi family had arrived in the town via the steamboat Gus Linn, Mr. Vivaldi having brought along his printing press and other equipment. The newspaper was then a "fixed and permanent fact." Blood updated Goodnow on the status of construction at the College and Joseph Denison's new home. He closed by reporting a rumor that there was a Republican majority in the Constitutional Convention at Wyandotte.
