This letter is from William A. Phillips of Salina, Kansas Territory, to Samuel N. Wood, then serving in the territorial legislature (which had adjourned to Lawrence the previous day),. Phillips expresses concern with regard to several local issues. He is especially troubled by the prospects of a renewed effort on the part of Junction City men "to steal a portion of Dickinson county." The boundary lines of both Saline and Dickinson counties should be left as they were, according to Phillips, who insisted the affected population agreed with him.

Creator: Phillips, William A. (William Addison), 1824-1893
