Salina K. T. Jan 14th 1861 Hon. S. N. Wood
Dear Sir As one of your constituents I claim the privilege of aquainting you with what legislation is needed is this portion of your district, or rather with what is not-needed
You perhaps know that there is a project on foot, originating in Junction City, to change the lines of Dickinson county by attaching a strip from the east side thereof to Davis However pleasing and desirable such a change would be to the people of Junction city, it is

one that is not only manifestly unjust but is directly opposed to the wishes and interests of the people of Dickinson Co. , They voted on that proposition last year and decided that no change would suit their interests
A change in the lines of Dickinson would necessarily involve a change in the lines of Saline which is something that must not be done under any circumstances. As one of your friends and supporters I ask you to use your influence against any such project.- You will be duly informed should we desire any further favors from you
respectfully yours A. C. Spilman P. O. address-Salina via Junction City
