Item Description
  Letter, T.J. Marsh to George L. Stearns
Author: Marsh, Thomas J.
Date: August 27, 1857

In this letter from Lawrence, K.T., Marsh reported that despite opposition from Judge Martin Conway, the delegates at the Grasshopper Falls Convention on August 26 "voted to go into the [October] Election with all the power they have." So, the stage was set for the campaign that needed all the financial support Stearns's committee could give it through Marsh.
