Although Thomas Ewing, Jr. was heavily involved in the promotion and development of the Leavenworth, Pawnee, and Western Railroad Company with his arrival in Kansas Territory, this seems to be one of the few letters in the letter press books containing fairly substantial references to those concerns up to that date. Here, Ewing wrote E. Peabody of St. Louis, Missouri, regarding a recent company board meeting in Leavenworth, Kansas, and plans to "connect with the Hannibal & St Jos: rail road, by the shortest & cheapest route to Bucklin or Easton," bypassing Platte City and Plattesburgh.

Date: April 9, 1859
