Item Description
  Letter, R. [Rachel] A. Garrison to Dear Cousin [Samuel Adair]
Author: Garrison, Rachel A.
Date: April 17, 1857

Rachel Garrison, the widow of David, wrote Samuel Adair about the family's land claim in Kansas. She noted that a new pro slavery "skamp" (Walker) had been appointed as territorial governor. She inquired if Mr. Day took 500 rails from her claim and that if he did, he should replace them. In a post script, she asked Adair to subscribe to the Herald of Freedom and have it sent to her.
