Thomas L. Marsh wrote this letter to George L. Stearns detailing the lack of response received from Governor Robert Walker concerning the territorial elections.

The letter ends with an account of money paid in support of the Free State cause. A searchable, full-text version of this letter is available by clicking "Text Version" below.
