Item Description
  Letter, Caleb S. Pratt to George L. Stearns
Author: Pratt, Caleb S.
Date: May 30, 1860

Pratt, who seemed to have been acting as Stearns' agent in Lawrence at this time, wrote regarding the Joseph Gardner request for firearms. On his own initiative, Pratt "allowed him [Gardner] to take 7 Rifles and 4 sabres to his house with permission to use the same if necessary . . ." This was a temporary loan that awaited Stearns' endorsement.
