Williams, an official of the Emigrant Aid Company, writes to Theodore Hyatt of New York from the offices of Glidden & Williams (California Packet Office) in Boston, regarding the payment of "$2500 for some lots . . ." which was to cover a note Williams had accepted from S. C. Pomeroy. Williams also comments on Kansas Territory politics: "I have been trying to raise $1000, to help Mr. Pomeroy in the Election (December 6?), his chance for the U S Senate, being very good; but he needs a little pecuniary assistance . . ." Pomeroy's election is declared critical because "he will have great influence on the course of the future Rail Road in Kansas . . . ."
