Letter, Tho. Ewing Jr. to Dear Sir [E. Peabody]
Although Thomas Ewing, Jr., was heavily involved the promotion and development of the Leavenworth, Pawnee and Western Railroad Company from his arrival in K.T., this seems to be one of few letter in the letter press books containing fairly substantial reference to those concerns to this date. Here, Ewing wrote E. Peabody of St. Louis regarding a recent company board meeting there in Leavenworth and plans "to connect with the Hannibal & St Jos: rail road, by the shortest & cheapest route to Bucklin or Easton," bypassing Platte City and Plattesburgh.
