Nathaniel P. Banks, U. S. Congressman from Massachusetts, writes Robinson from Washington on March 19, 1856, to forward John Fremont's letter and to encourage its publication in Kansas Territory. The newly-elected speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Banks believes Fremont is a good friend of Kansas Territory, and that he would make a solid, "electable" candidate for president. Banks also writes that he is "hopeful the Kansas question will meet its first decision in the House this week." He is confident something positive would be done for the cause.
