On December 19, 1860, Charles Robinson writes to his wife from Washington, D.C., where he is lobbying members of Congress and other officials on behalf of Kansas and himself. Numerous Kansans, including Robinson, who is conducting a vigorous campaign for appointment as Commissioner of Indian Affairs, are seeking positions in the new administration. "Unless men lie beyond all comprehension," writes Robinson, "I don't see how I can fail of the appointment." Robinson did not receive this appointment.
