Item Description
  Letter, Thomas H. Webb to Dear Sir [Isaac Goodnow]
Author: Webb, Thomas H. (Hopkins), 1801-1866
Date: July 21, 1858

Thomas Webb, Secretary of the New England Emigrant Aid Company, wrote to Isaac Goodnow, indicating his overwhelming approval for the creation of a college in Manhattan, Kansas Territory, not knowing of a "more beautiful and eligible spot than the one selected." Webb communicated his pride in the fact that a Free State supporter would be the one to initiate such a project, and told Goodnow he had recently received a $12,000 donation from a Massachussetts man, which was to support the college.
