July 2, 1857
The letter was a follow up to Crane's presentation in St. Joseph, Missouri, about efforts to build the St. Joseph and Topeka Railroad. Crane had made a commitment to raise money for building the railroad and Russell was inquiring about his progress. Russell lived in Elwood, Doniphan County, and was lobbying for the railroad to go through that community.

Letter, Ed Russell to Friend [Franklin] Crane
June 1, 1859
This letter, sent by Ed Russell to Franklin Crane, a prominent Topeka citizen, concerned the proposed St. Joseph and Topeka Railroad. Russell was convinced that the people of Topeka had not acted in "good faith" by choosing to route the railroad through Doniphan rather than Elwood. Russell wanted the railroad to go through his hometown of Elwood, which had been the initial plan. This letter illustrates how various communities competed for railroads, even if these railroads were never built.
