I have written you a Discription of the Country in my last letter. So I Shall
not bore you with another. I mentioned to you before the Death of youngh Akins,
who was hung by Some of his Border Ruffian Enemy he committed no crime, but that
of fighting the Ruffians in 1856 under Lane, he was taken out at night, hung
by Jack Reler & Dr Stone & Co. is the general opinion here now. They
are watched close and may go the Same way at anny time. Akins friends Sifting
the affair to the Botton,
We have just heard by the Express that Lincoln is Nominated at Chicago - Amen
I Say & I think he is the Strongest man, but Seward the best before the
Convention but Bates Never I prefer a clean Defeat with Lincoln, in prefference
to a victory with Bates, So you See I am no politician.
Give my respects to all the friends,
Yours Respt. John McCannon
