This is another personal letter from a tired and somewhat discouraged Charles Robinson in Lawrence, Kansas Territory, to his wife, Sara, who is apparently about ready to rejoin her husband in Lawrence, as he discusses meeting her in St. Louis. Robinson made reference to business affairs, including those in Quindaro, and curiously suggests that he was "about ready to go with Mr. Grover to South America" because he was "getting sick of this turmoil & strife."

Creator: Robinson, Charles, 1818-1894
