Charles Robinson writes from Washington, D. C., to speculate about the prospects for financing and building a railroad in the Kansas River valley. He contends that government land grants would be necessary for the successful construction and operation of a railroad. Robinson also defends himself against charges that he was not working hard enough to convince the U.S. Congress to support a railroad in the Kansas River valley.
