Mrs Morton

Mr Morton requested me to noti—fy you, that he had gone forth, on an election—aring tour, and would not, probably, return to this City before next Tuesday, the 4th proxi—mo On his return here, he may take a trip up the Platte Valley, yet this is not fully determined upon.

Allow me to assure you, Mrs Morton, that we are doing all we can to elect Mr Moorton, and, if the South Platte will only do her duty, he will be notorious, by a flattering majority.

Hoping you and the children are well

I remain as ever
Your sincere friend

John McConihe
