SELECTED LETTERS OF SALMON P. CHASE
To Edward L. Pierce.
CHICAGO, July 4, 1853.
MY DEAR SIR: I have just returned from Missouri. Your letter reached me I think at St. Louis. I regret not seeing your brother, or yourself. You have seen that I did not speak at St. Louis and why it was best that I could not; I believe the correspondence will do more than a speech would have done.
Chicago is a flourishing place but the total ensemble did not please me. I should prefer Cincinnati or St. Louis to live in.
What would you think of the life editorial and taking charge of a paper here or at Chicago? [sic] I am pretty certain you could succeed, and win reputation and fortune as well as at the bar.
