Item Description
  Letter, R. [Robert] S. Stevens to My Dear Sir [Orville C. Brown]
Author: Stevens, Robert S.
Date: February 18, 1860

This letter, written by Robert Stevens while in Washington, D. C., was addressed to Orville C. Brown, Osawatomie, Kansas Territory. It informed Brown that the Land Office had decided that all entries of town sites made by Kansas probate judges were null and void. Stevens inquired as to whether Osawatomie had a formal municipal organization. He also urged Brown to discuss this issue with no one, in order to prevent others from jumping the town site.
