In this letter from Leavenworth to E. Peabody in St. Joseph, Mo., Ewing sought information about ongoing railroad projects to better inform his and the public's decision in an upcoming bond election. Leavenworth County residents were being asked "to subscribe and issue $100,000 of county bonds to the Leavenworth & Cameron Railroad Company," and Ewing was leaning against it. He favored an extension of the "Platte County road" and subsequent development of the "Leavenworth & Fort Riley road."
