From Leavenworth, Kansas Territory, Delahay responds to Samuel Wood's November 14th request that Delahay come to "the Grove" [Council Grove] to assist with the election campaign. Delahay is not sure he could make this long trip, since "our court commences" on the first Monday of December, and he expects to be busy with the local campaign. Delahay ends by asking Wood to help secure for him the position of "chief clerk" in the territorial legislature, "the office that I was by base treachery last winter swindled out of . . ."
