While in Washington, D. C., John A. Halderman followed the congressional debate regarding Kansas admission and informs the "Constitution" editors that Senator Louis T. Wigfall, a Texas firebrand, has reportedly "assailed the character of the people of Kansas Territory." Halderman regrets that, since he was not "privileged" to take the floor of either house, he could not officially denounce these "unwarranted accusations" and writes that he fears if he and others are silent the accusations might be accepted as truth.
