Summary: This letter from Samuel C. Pomeroy to Thaddeus Hyatt was written from the Planters House hotel in Leavenworth, Kansas Territory, on March 6, 1858 (not 1859, as marked), and deals with a variety of subjects, financial and political. Pomeroy began with comments on banking, property, and railroad promotion, and ends with observations about Kansas politics and the Lecompton Constitution, which he believed was finished. "Kansas is as sure to freedom as Plymouth Rock." Even if the proslave constitution passed Congress, all it would do is re-ignite the forces of freedom: "Kansas is safe to the free state party. So don't spend any more time, strength or money about it. The victory is won! . . .The millennium for the free labor interests of the Country will begin in 1860!"
