Hiram Hill wrote from his visit in Lawrence, Kansas Territory, to his brother, O. G. Hill, in Boston. Hill told his brother that he hoped to be back home in Massachusetts by June, but that he was unsure how long his business would take in Quindaro. He reported that the Territory was quiet, the border ruffians were "as tame as a pack of spaniels", and were more interested in having free state men invest in their towns than in large-scale fighting.
