Joseph Denison attached this letter to Isaac Goodnow to the end of a longer one written by Isaac's wife, Ellen. Denison advised Goodnow to purchase insurance for the college buildings, as soon as possible, to prevent a large investment loss. He also suggested that, once the roof of the building was completed, someone sleep there at night to provide it some security. Denison added that the railroad from Wyandotte to Fort Riley now had a stop, complete with a depot, in Manhattan, Kansas.
