Item Description
  Letter, Eli Thayer to Mr. [Charles] Robinson
Author: Thayer, Eli , 1819-1899
Date: August 5, 1856

From Worcester, Mass., on August 5, 1856, the founder of the Emigrant Aid Company wrote Charles Robinson's "brother" about "certain efforts to injure the reputation of your brother" whom Thayer called "heroic." He mentions the Buffalo convention and the shipment of weapons to KT, but the main objective was to reassure the governor via his "brother" that he had not been forgotten and that Thayer would remain his champion in the East.
