Aston House New York Jan. 20/60
My Dear S.
I arrived here night before last & have been busy ever since arranging business matters etc. Mr. Mitchell is here & paying the interest on the bonds. R. S. Stevens, Colby & Reynolds are also here this morning. I have not seen Stevens but a moment but expect him in every minute. The prospect is pretty good that we can do something with our bank, bonds etc.
Congress not yet organized & no prospect of it. Colby says the Democrats will oppose our admission into the Union. He thinks I may be sent for as a witness in Harpers Ferry affair.

I intend to go to Boston from here & may not go to Washington at all. Cannot now tell when I can go home. Will know more tonight or tomorrow about it. I received a letter from Mr Blood since my arrival also one from Mr Hopkins of K. City. That is all. Wish I might find one from my good wife soon. I have written you twice. Once from Chicago & once from Cincinnati.
Affectionately yours C Regards to all, & a heart full of love for my good wife
