Kagi writes his father, who was still in Nebraska, regarding his continuing problems with proslavery officials in Lecompton, Kansas Territory. Kagi was arrested again (and quickly made bail). He was nearly killed by a mob while there "to report the proceedings" of the territorial legislature, which opened on January 12, 1857. This was the first legislature to meet in Lecompton. The second page of the letter is written on the back of a printed item "Appeal of Kansas to the Voters of the Free States" from the "Kansas Tribune,"
