27th June 1854.
John A. Halderman Esq:
Since you were here, now a little more than a week, nothing has transpired
that I am aware of which will be of much interest to you. The immigration of
settlers does not diminish I believe, though there have been no arrivals at
the place of persons intending to remain. I feel convinced however, that the
territory will be populated with a rapidity unparralled in the rise of state
Nor am I at all doubtful as to the success which men in the profession which
you and I have chosen will meet with. I think a fine field will open in the
course of a few months I shall be glad to hear from you.
Very faithfully yrs,
C. C. Andrews.
