Friend Sterling

I shall cer—tainly be in Neb. City as soon as Tuesday night; unless a boat will take me there sooner. Shall drive down Tuesday and stop at the Morton House.

Please hand the enclosed letters to Mr R Furnas, and say to him I will be on hand.

Genl Estabrook goes to Plattesmouth on Tuesday. Political matters

matters are rather blue. The Republicans up here are hard at work and they tell the people, that Daily is a better North Platte and Omaha interest man than Genl Estabrook. But it won't do— Estabrook must be elected or we are all gone up politically.

I am rejoiced to know the Capt (Moore) has se—cured the Omaha Indian Agency.

Regards to the Governor and to the Mrs Morton

I am truly your friend

John Mc Conihe
