Ed Russell to Franklin Crane

Ed Russell to Franklin Crane
Creator: Russell, Ed
Date: June 1, 1859
This letter, sent by Ed Russell to Franklin Crane, a prominent citizen of Topeka, Kansas Territory, concerns the proposed St. Joseph and Topeka Railroad.

This letter illustrates how various communities competed for railroads, even if these railroads were never built.
