Charles Robinson wrote several letters to his wife, Sara Robinson in Lawrence, Kansas Territory, as he traveled East in January, 1860. From the Astor House in New York, he writes on January 20th that Congress was not yet in session, and that everyone expects the Democrats to oppose Kansas admission. It is possible that Robinson could "be sent for as a witness in Harpers Ferry affair" (Congressional investigation/hearings).
