In this letter to Reverend Thomas W. Higginson, Franklin B. Sanborn writes about the prospects of raising money and men to support the Kansas Territory cause. He also mentions that Mr. Emerson had made a speech in Cambridge, Massachusetts--"it was a good speech but not well delivered." People in towns in the area are making clothing to send to Kansas Territory. George Stearns is also making progress in his attempts to more fully organize a comprehensive state committee in Massachusetts.
