William Addison Phillips, snowbound in Salina, Kansas Territory, writes to encourage Samuel Wood to look after Salina's interests in the legislature. He is especially concerned about the potential effort by men from Junction City to promote their town at the expense of Salina, through the acquisition of "special legislative privileges." Phillips specifically mentions the development of the Pikes Peak road. He expresses concern about legislative actions that would allow a monopoly on bridge building, railroad charters and the location of such roads, and post offices.
