From Quindaro, Kansas Territory, Charles Robinson wrote to inform his wife, Sara, about matters of business pertaining to this young city on the Kaw River. He believed "railroad matters look[ed] very well for Quindaro," for example. Robinson also takes this opportunity to scold his wife about her attitude toward the people of Lawrence, some of whom she apparently thought were 'aristocratic or exclusive but I know of no one more exclusive than yourself; I do not know whether from pride of Character or circumstance or something else."

Creator: Robinson, Charles, 1818-1894
