Creator: Anthony, D. R. (Daniel Read), 1824-1904
Date: July 13, 1857
This letter is from Daniel Read Anthony, Sr. to his sister discussing his plans to attend the convention of the Free State Party in Topeka as a delegate of the people of Atchison County. Anthony also mentions D. W. Wilder is a member of his traveling party. The Topeka convention served as the Free State response to the proslavery territorial legislature that many believed was illegally elected by fraudulent voters. One of his sisters was Susan B. Anthony but it is not clear if that is the sister to whom he is writing.

Creator: Anthony, D. R. (Daniel Read), 1824-1904
Date: August 07, 1857
The following is a letter from Daniel Read Anthony, Sr. to his sister describing his recent land acquisitions and providing a sketch drawing of her claim (at the edge of the Kickapoo Tribe reservation) that he has prepared for her once she arrives in the territory. American Indian lands were in high demand as white settlers poured into the territory. It is not clear if the "sister" to whom the letter is addressed is Susan B. Anthony but there are references to a claim for Susan and the map (last page) shows her cabin.
