On Sunday, May 25, 1856, "at the request of Gov. Robinson," S. P. Hanscom writes Sara T. D. Robinson to assure her that her "esteemed and gallant husband" is well. This remarkably detailed letter describes the governor's captivity, the bogus charges filed against him, and circumstances that brought him to Leavenworth, Kansas Territory. Hanscom states that Robinson is receiving many visitors, including Congressman William A. Howard, chair of the congressional committee investigating the Kansas troubles.
