On August 11, 1857, Marsh reports from Lawrence, Kansas Territory, that territorial governor Walker is "still here with his Troops, but nobody pays any regard to him, or them." According to D. W. Wilder, Annals of Kansas, however, all but forty troops left on August 3, the day of the election under the Topeka Constitution, which Marsh also mentions. His primary concern remains the October election, which many feared would not be fairly conducted despite the governor's promises and the growing talk of another Free State Party boycott of the polls.
