Item Description Bookbag Share

Humbolt Kans.  May 10,  1880

Hon. J.P. St. John

 

Sir.

Yours of 6 recd.   We will make arrangements for your visit to us Thursday evening, May 20th at 8 o'clock, and at Iola at 2 P.M. of same day.  By coming on the M. K. & T. R.R. from Emporia, you arrive here just in time to transfer to K.C. Le. & Southern, which will take you to Iola.  There you will have time enough to make your address, and return on the down train to Humbolt.  Or should you prefer it, we can take you in a carriage from this point to Iola and return.  If you take the route by Lawrence, and down the K. C. Le. & S. you will have to come the day before, or else take a freight train on the latter road, which is often uncertain as respects time.  You had better come by Emporia.  Please inform me in due time in reference to your route.  We expect a large crowd of people to attend.

Yours Truly

Samuel Price
