This letter from Chauncey Shaffer, a New York attorney, to Joseph Denison, an agent for Bluemont College, is one example of many letters received by Denison and Isaac Goodnow that pledged monetary support for the creation of the college in Manhattan, Kansas Territory. In this case, Shaffer stated that he would do his best to raise $5000, but cautioned against expecting too much, as tough financial times were upon them.
