William Goodnow wrote from Shannon, Kansas Territory, to his wife Harriet in New England, relating details of recent political and military events in the Territory. Goodnow reported that he had participated in the election for the adaptation of the State Constitution as it was drawn up by the free state convention at Topeka. He added that the coming weekend would bring a convention in Lawrence to nominate state officers. Goodnow also communicated news of the end of the Wakarusa War and the restoration of peace in the area; he had no doubt that freedom would prevail.
