Americus Lyon Co Kansas
June 12. 1868
Hon E. G. Ross
Dear Sir
From what I see in the papers I fear you must almost be affraid to open a letter for fear of reading some Miserable Slang
So far as I am concearned I cannot see why you have not as much of a right to render a verdict according to Law & evidence as any [Juror] consequently I have no reason for abuseing you as some do
I am glad to see one man who feels as though he should do justice to all even Their Politics or Color may differ I am sure you have more friends in Kansas as yet than many represent a few of the fool [Rads] have spoken their piece and it

might appear to one at a distance that all Kansas had come down on you I notice such as L.D. Bailes, F.G. Hunt and other sore heads appear to think it a fine opportunity to [pounce] upon you, I do not know that I can say or do anything that would give you any pleasure more than to show you that I cannot feel like condemning you for doing what your judgment dictated to you was right
Yours Respectfully
T. C. Hill
