Dr. Barstow Darrach writes from the New York Hospital to comment on published reports that implied the prospects for Kansas Territory becoming a free state were improving. Darrach shares his thoughts on Republicans and Democrats at the national level and also on the possible reactions of southerners. Darrach asks for news of the petition to free Andrew Reeder and the recent Osawatomie arrests. He describes his personal plans that will prevent him from returning to Kansas Territory for at least two years.
