Eli Thayer, the founder of the Emigrant Aid Company, wrote from Worcester, Massachusetts, to Charles Robinson's "brother" about "certain efforts to injure the reputation of your brother" whom Thayer called "heroic." He mentions the Buffalo convention and the shipment of weapons to Kansas Territory, but the main objective was to reassure the governor, via his unnamed "brother," that he had not been forgotten, and that Thayer would remain Robinson's champion in the East. Thayer also mentions shipping muskets to Kansas Territory.
