A letter from Horace D. Hickok, Olathe, Kansas Territory, to his brother Lorenzo Butler Hickok. Horace talks about the political activity in the territory and Missouri delegates coming to the Democratic Convention. He writes that people are returning from the Peak and the mines are paying from ten to twenty dollars per day. Horace is thinking about going to either Santa Fe or the Peak in the spring. He closes the letter and begins another one talking about making overalls and the Sunday sermon at church. Horace comments on Olathe's growth "like a pumpkin vine".
