Item Description
  Letter, C [Charles Robinson] to My Dear S [Sara Robinson]
Author: Robinson, Charles
Date: January 20, 1860

Charles Robinson wrote several letters to his wife in Lawrence as he traveled East in January 1860. From the Astor House, New York, on January 20, he wrote that Congress was not yet in session and that everyone expected the Democrats to oppose Kansas admission. It was possible that Robinson could "be sent for as a witness in Harpers Ferry affair" (Congressional investigation/hearings).
