Item Description
  Letter, M. [Martin] F. Conway to F. [Franklin] B. Sanborn
Author: Conway, Martin Franklin
Date: November 16, 1857

Shortly before he was to leave Washington, D.C., for a return trip to the territory, Conway wrote Sanborn in Concord, Mass., about his disappointment at again being separated from his wife and child, but he focused most of his comments on the Lecompton machinations and his continued belief that the Free State Party had be wrong to participate in the territorial election (thus giving that government legitimacy).
