This collection consists of a single letter, dated December 13, 1855, Cleveland, Ohio, to Hiram Hill, Esq., Philadelphia, Penn. Coates discusses his transacting business regarding real estates interests in Lawrence and Kansas City shared by Coates, Hill and others, who are unnamed. Their property in Lawrence is considered valuable and at Coates' direction was surveyed into town lots. Coates also alludes to the "trouble" in Lawrence which would probably "'fizzle out 'most ingloriously."
