In this letter from Atchison, Kansas Territory, Pomeroy updates his business partner on the progress of Missouri's railroads, which were about completed to St. Joseph. Pomeroy proposes that they "put the Lightfoot [a river steamship owned by Hyatt] upon this River to run from Atchison to St. Joseph daily -- in connection with the cars." He says a fare of $2.50 could be charged for a "pleasant trip of not more than 3 hours down -- and 5 or 6 hours up."

Creator: Pomeroy, S. C. (Samuel Clarke), 1816-1891
