Writing from Wyandotte City, Kansas Territory, Joseph Pomeroy Root reported that Governor Robert J. Walker had passed by Wyandotte City that morning on a steamer and was bound for Washington, D. C. Root speculated that Walker's administration was in jeopardy, and made other comments that reflected the negative view of Free State party members towards pro-slavery Democrats in Kansas.
