From Meadville, Pennsylvania, Cyrus Holliday writes to Franklin Crane, a prominent doctor in Topeka, Kansas Territory. Holliday is anxious to get back to Kansas Territory but family illness has prevented his departure from Pennsylvania. He reports on several people who had been involved in Kansas Territory, including pro-slavery supporters Colonel Titus and Preston Brooks (who had died recently). He also commends Gov. Roberts (?) for his efforts on behalf of Kansas Territory.
