This letter, dated Lawrence, January 11, 1858, is most likely from Samuel C. Smith to Charles Robinson. Smith mentions many of the Free State Party's main actors and issues at that critical time in Kansas politics. He describes the activities of the Legislature, which assembled in Lawrence that January, and devotes considerable attention to the machinations of the "villain" Jim Lane.

Creator: Smith, Samuel C.
