Item Description
  Letter, T. [Thomas] J. Marsh to George L. Stearns, Esq.
Author: Marsh, Thomas J.
Date: September 12, 1857

To George Stearns on September 12, 1857, Thomas Marsh wrote that he was leaving Lawrence on a trip to "the Southern part of Kansas" for several days. He believed the "Free State men were getting into good shape for the election," which would go well if there was no "invasion" or "fraud." He also talked about some Democratic activity and mentioned the adjournment of the Lecompton Constitutional Convention.
