From Columbus, Ohio, Governor Salmon P. Chase writes Samuel Newitt Wood, a former Ohioan, regarding Kansas politics and Chase's political prospects, speculating about the senatorial contest and the presidential contest of 1860. Chase is pleased that the Wyandotte Constitution passed by a good margin, and believes it would be political "suicide" for the Democratic majority in the Senate to oppose it. "To reject Kansas would be to throw away all." On the back is a "confidential" note from Chase's clerk, M. W. Delahay.

Creator: Chase, Salmon P. (Salmon Portland), 1808-1873
