N. S. Storrs of Emporia, Kansas Territory, writes Samuel Wood concerning the ill will that had developed toward Wood in Butler County as a result of the recent (October 12, 1859) Republican nominating convention and the subsequent election of P.G.D. Morton to the territorial legislature. Storrs agrees with his friends from Butler County that it was a "packed" convention, and that Butler was not given sufficient representation. The county, Storrs writes, just wanted "her proper rights and not have a man forced upon her by Skullduggery and damd rascality." Storrs advises Wood to convince people in Butler County that "you did not pledged yourself to Morton."
