Leavenworth Kansas Feb 23d. 1860.
Dr. Hamp. We have filed a demurrer in the case of Smoot Russell & Co against us. They probably can not get judgment for a couple of months. So you need not fret at present.
I sincerely regret your failure. By rejecting you, however, Buchanan has paid you the only compliment in his power to bestow--the damned old scoundrel! Like a toad, he grows more ugly and venomous with increasing age. If the devil dont get him, then there's no use keeping a devil.
The feeling on the subject here is intense, and looks as if the democracy of Leavenworth and the safety of the Union, were both in peril. But don't trouble yourself, for it will all come out right in another year. Remember me kindly to your Father--
Yours Thomas Ewing Jr
H.B. Denman Esq
