ALS (draft), 1857 Mar. 8, Menasha, Wis., to Geo. D. Emerson, Ontonagon, Mich.

In response to an editorial in Emerson's Lake Superior miner, Doty supports the formation of the new state of Minnesota against the opposition of Michigan. To prove that Michigan has no right to the Minnesota lands he gives the full history of the establishment and boundaries of Michigan, beginning with the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 and its provisions for creating states.
